Submission + - Judge orders permanent injunction against Psystar (appleinsider.com)

AdmiralXyz writes: It appears to be the end of the road for infamous Mac-clone maker Psystar, as a federal judge has issued a permanent injunction against the company, banning it from selling its OS X-based hardware products, following November's ruling that Psystar was guilty of copyright infringement under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. Specifically, Judge William Alsup's ruling prevents Psystar from "copying, selling, offering to sell, distributing or creating derivative works of Mac OS X without authorization from Apple; circumventing any technological measure that effectively controls access Mac OS X; or doing anything to circumvent the rights held by Apple under the Copyright Act with respect to Mac OS X". The ruling does not include Psystar's Rebel EFI software, which (in theory) allows users to boot OS X onto any computer, but Alsup said that too would be unlikely to stand up in court if Apple decides to make a formal challenge.
