Psystar agrees to pay Apple $2.7M in settlement - Page 3

post #81 of 88
All kidding aside, why would Psystar agree to pay 2.7 million when it's clear there is no way they can pay it?

Even at 200k if we figure out net profit per actual unit sold, minus legal fees and operation costs, for a start up trying to make a name and trying to convince potential investors that they can move a lot of profit, there really is no way they have this kind of money from sales.

Bravo! Apple user?

No, I think they were paying for every OS they installed in the machines. That's not stealing.

Making copies of the store bought versions of Mac OS X without Apples permission or consent is stealing.

Was this part of the scheme from day one?

If you think that major manufacturers like Dell, or HP, or anyone else would sell computers with OS X pre-installed without an agreement with Apple you need to see a doctor.

But that is not what Macfabulous is suggesting. He is suggesting that somebody used Psystar as a stalking horse which is within the realm of plausibility. I think Apple wants to go into Florida with the DMCA ruling and blow Psystar out of the water in Psystar's home state.

I suppose the number might have been Apple's decision in a way. Apple knows they can't pay. Perhaps it's just symbolic of the "damage" they did. It may just be for legal precedent's sake.
