Legal Well, this pretty much seals the deal. Psystar is now officially burnt down to the ground, nothing left, it's all over. Judge William Alsup has granted Apple's motion for a permanent injunction, and even though the actual legal case only involved Leopard, the injunction specifically covers Snow Leopard and Rebel EFI as well.

I think Psystar are a bunch of asshats that, for the sake of sane precedents being set on software copyright, needed to win.

Of course, there are appeals. Given more money, Psystar could appeal, and fight it.

But, maybe the theories about Psystar being a front company for Apple, so they could sue themselves, and get bad precedents set, were true.

Heh yeah, I heard that funny theory too. Nonsense of course, but if it were true - you'd have to admit, pretty clever.

If this was Apple NZ instead of Apple US then that might be a possibility, as suing oneself seems to be the done thing over there:
