Apple on Thursday fired the first salvo in its legal response to an iMac
lookalike in the works from Santa Clara, Calif., startup Future Power.

Meanwhile, Future Power defended the striking similarities between the
iMac and its E-Power system as a natural result of designing an all-in-one

Apple announced that it has filed a complaint against Future Power and its
backer, South Korean PC manufacturer Daewoo, for illegally copying the
iMac's industrial design with its forthcoming all-in-one E-Power system.
The complaint, which was filed in U.S. Federal Court in San Jose, Calif.,
"seeks to enjoin Future Power and Daewoo from distributing computers that
illegally copy Apple's designs, and asks for actual and punitive damages
resulting from such illegal conduct."
