Apple and Psystar, the companies who have sued and countersued each other over Psystar's Mac clone computers, have agreed to an "Alternative Dispute Resolution," according to The Mac Observer blog.

It's unclear which side - or maybe even the judge - asked for the ADR process but the idea is that the two sides might be able to meet and work out a resolution in lieu of going to trial. The process could take several months.

In July, Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Miami-based Psystar for selling Mac clone computers that use the Leopard operating system. The next month, Psystar countersued, alleging anticompetitive business practice for trying the operating system to machines built only by Apple.
