Psystar Owes Apple $75K According to Bankruptcy Filing

A couple of weeks ago, troubled Mac clone maker Psystar filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Now, as part of the filing in Florida, federal court documents have revealed that Psystar owes Apple $75,000.

Computerworld notes that under "Schedule F -- Creditors Holding Unsecured Nonpriority Claims," Psystar listed Apple Inc., said it owed $75,000, and also had the phrase "Litigation Pending" in the section where Psystar was to provide "consideration for claim."

There's no word yet on what the money is for, and an Apple spokesperson had declined to comment on the matter. But the article points out that Psystar has long claimed it purchased legitimate copies of OS X from Apple for each of the computers it had sold. It's possible that some or all of that money has to do with retail copies of OS X (since Apple quit licensing its operating system directly to clone makers over a decade ago).
