Apple defends use of \"Unix
Kelly McNeill of osViews has written an editorial on Apple's struggle with the Open Group over . The Open Group claims that Apple is infringing upon its trademark and that the company was devaluing its asset by not adhering to the strict guidelines that it specified. "If the matter were an issue of simply adhering to a collection of standards, I can't imagine that Apple would have been reluctant to get its OS up to spec to avoid litigation, but [...] I have a hunch that it has something to do with the $100,000 yearly fee that the Open Group requires," McNeill says.
