Apple sues clone maker Psystar

Apple has sued Psystar, the company that for months has been selling the Open Computer, a Mac clone.

The suit was filed July 3 in U.S. District Court in Northern California.

Although the action is listed in the federal court's electronic filing system, the complaint itself is not available.

Of course, if anything, the surprising thing is not that Apple is suing Psystar, but what took them this long?

Psystar has been selling a desktop computer running Apple's Mac OS since April.

I placed inquires at both Apple and Psystar for comment and will update this as soon as I get comment from either.

The suit was noted earlier Tuesday by ZDNet blogger Adrian Kingsley-Hughes and legal blogger Jorge Espinoza.

Update: An Apple representative confirmed it had taken action against Psystar, adding "We take it very seriously when we believe people have stolen our intellectual property."

A Psystar employee said no one was available to comment on the suit.
