Hardware, Embedded Systems Just when you thought you saw it all. So, we all know about Psystar, the two lawsuits between them and Apple, and all the other stuff that's been regurgitated about ten million times on OSNews alone. Well, that little company has taken its business to the next level - by announcing an OEM licensing program.

Verson vs Autodesk is not relevant to Apple vs Psystar. See here why:

As much as I respect PJ, I don't trust her one bit when it comes to the Psystar case. She is seeing a major consipriacy here, where she thinks Microsoft is behind it all, and that it's all part of an elaborate attack on the GPL, tied to the SCO case.

I can't take her assessments seriously anymore. She lost a lost of credibility in my book when she started that black helicopter nonsense.

Don't change the subject. We're not talking about PJ's conspiracy theory (BTW, she was right about the SCO case).

We are talking about what cases are relevant to Apple vs Psystar. PJ quotes extensively from a decision from an US judge, on a case very similar to Apple vs Psystar. And it's that judge, not PJ, who explains why Verner vs Autodesk doesn't apply.

As was already pointed out to you, that case is NOT similar. The WoW case concerns a subscription service, and therefore, it is in acompletely different ballpark than Apple/Psystar - as the judge in the Autodesk case ALSO mentioned.

PJ or no PJ, she is off the mark on this one. And I'm sorry, but I can't shake the feeling that her judgment is clouded by the black helicopter nonsense.
