The apparently protracted litigation between Apple и Psystarfinally finished. The victory went Apple, which is logical. Psystar will pay her a very large sum, which should cover both legal costs and damages.
This process has been going on for 18 months now. It would seem that all the trump cards are in the hands of Apple. But nothing to do with the stubborn Psystar failed. Remember: the company Psystar "famous" for producing computers running macOS X. Despite the fact that Apple does not license its OS to third parties. That is, anyone who installs it on a PC automatically becomes a pirate, with all the ensuing consequences.
And finally, it was announced that the court recognized the correctness Apple. According to this decision, Psystar will have to pay $2.7 million. The case seems to be closed.

And although it is not entirely clear where the beggar Psystar will be able to get that amount - in all this time it has sold less than 1000 computers, and litigation is very expensive. Representatives Apple they declare that this amount will not cover even part of the damage caused to them. Not to mention damage to reputation.
However, many experts believe that Psystar all this time there was someone much more powerful, hiding behind her like a mask. Names are called different, but all known: for example Dell и Microsoft. How else could a weak company have been able to withstand the onslaught of lawyers for so long Apple?
