Apple Won't Say Uncle

APPLE WON'T SAY UNCLE

A lot of companies would have packed it in by now. But not Apple Computer. On June 1, U. S. District Judge Vaughn Walker said he will issue a ruling giving the heave-ho to Apple's latest claims that software by Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard copied the "look and feel" of the Macintosh. That should have spelled the end of a tumultuous, five-year battle that has cost all three companies millions. But Apple vows it will try to take its case to appellate court. "We think it is important that innovative graphical computer works receive the protection to which they are entitled under the copyright law," says Edward Stead, Apple's general counsel. Meanwhile, Microsoft and HP are celebrating--and planning to ask the courts to order Apple to pay their "many millions of dollars" in legal costs.EDITED BY JULIE TILSNER
