Legal The week isn't even over yet, and we already have another instalment in the Apple-Psystar soap opera. Psystar has filed a new lawsuit in the Florida Southern District Court in Miami, asking for an injunction and damages because of Apple's "anticompetitive attempts to tie Mac OS X Snow Leopard to its Macintosh line of computers".

wait...so you're saying that unless you're the company that wrote the software/engineered the product, you shouldn't be allowed to sell it? So companies that sell products that they had nothing to do with creating are in your eyes 'blood sucking' ??

Don't confuse a license to sell another companies products to a company not licensed to sell another companies products and now sues that company for not extending a license to sell that company's goods.

You don't need a licence to sell software, period.

The most Apple can do is have retail partners (ie resellers they endorse and recommend). What they can't do is dictate who can and can't sell their software.
