Report: Apple, Psystar Mediation Talks Fail

gavel2It appears lawyers for Apple and clone-maker Psystar will head back to the courtroom after failed mediation talks, according to reports Monday.

The court-ordered talks, held secretly February 18 between the two companies, “did not settle” the copyright-infringement case, according to the World of Apple Website, quoting an unnamed “contact.”

A federal court earlier this month agreed to allow Psystar to submit a modified counterclaim against Apple’s initial charges. The Mac clone maker now maintains Apple has misused its copyright protections of the OS X software to stifle hardware rivals.

Last week, German company HyperMegaNet expressed confidence it could win a similar lawsuit, charging Apple’s End-User Licensing Agreement would be invalid in that nation.
