Psystar Suit Against Apple Dismissed

Lora Bentley

Well, just when Psystar had gone off my radar, it's back. The company, which found itself in legal hot water with Apple after it began selling a Mac clone, filed an antitrust countersuit against Apple in August.


Tuesday, a federal judge dismissed the countersuit, according to InformationWeek. Paul McDougall writes:

Alsup noted that many of Psystar's arguments actually worked against its allegation of an Apple monopoly... [He] also said Psystar failed to provide evidence for its claim that Apple can increase prices for Mac-based products without losing market share -- a situation that would indicate the presence of a monopoly market.

The judge found that Psystar had not offered proof of the monopoly it claimed, and gave the company 20 days (until Dec. 8 ) to ask him to reconsider the dismissal.
