Na prática, a Psystar agora não tem mais o que fazer, pois está proibida de copiar, vender, ofertar, distribuir ou criar trabalhos relacionados ao Mac OS X e seus softwares sem autorização expressa da Apple.

Eis a determinação do juiz na íntegra, em inglês:

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Apple’s motion for a permanent injunction is GRANTED, and defendant is permanently and immediately enjoined from:

  1. Copying, selling, offering to sell, distributing, or creating derivative works of plaintiff’s copyrighted Mac OS X software without authorization from the copyright holder;
  2. Intentionally inducing, aiding, assisting, abetting, or encouraging any other person or entity to infringe plaintiff’s copyrighted Mac OS X software;
  3. Circumventing any technological measure that effectively controls access to plaintiff’s copyrighted Mac OS X software, including, but not limited to, the technological measure used by Apple to prevent unauthorized copying of Mac OS X on non-Apple computers;
  4. Manufacturing, importing, offering to the public, providing, or otherwise trafficking in any technology, product, service, device, component, or part thereof that is primarily designed or produced for the purpose of circumventing a technological measure that effectively controls access to plaintiff’s copyrighted Mac OS X software, including, but not limited to, the technological measure used by Apple to prevent unauthorized copying of Mac OS X on non-Apple computers;
  5. Manufacturing, importing, offering to the public, providing, or otherwise trafficking in any technology, product, service, device, component, or part thereof that is primarily designed or produced for the purpose of circumventing a technological measure that effectively protects the rights held by plaintiff under the Copyright Act with respect to its copyrighted Mac OS X software.

A Psystar tem até 31 de dezembro de 2009 para cumprir a determinação, que não a exime do pagamento de US$2,7 milhões à Apple.

Ao que tudo indica, a sentença engloba também o software Rebel EFI, criado pela Psystar.
