Psystar Sues Apple For Violating Anti-Trust Laws
It's the old American Wild Law way: you got sued? Counter-sue your opponent! This time, the legal ring has Apple in one corner and Psystar in the other.

Now Psystar decided to hit Apple with an antitrust case. The Apple-clone maker alleges that Apple's way of bundling the OS with the hardware doesn't comply to current antitrust laws.
If the plaintiff wins the case, the road for Apple-clones is clear and the Cupertino company will be anything but happy: after all, the Mac is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) source of revenue for the company.
The bad new for Apple is that Microsoft's bundling the Internet Explorer browser with the Windows OS was met with the same kind of criticism and Redmond eventually lost a lot of legal ground in both Europe and the US.
