Apple copyright suit ends

Apple Computer Inc.'s high-stakes copyright lawsuit against two rivals ended yesterday when a federal judge in San Francisco dismissed the suit's two remaining elements.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker granted two motions that were part of a prearranged deal between Apple, Hewlett-Packard Co. and Microsoft Corp. The agreement effectively ended the $5.5 billion suit, filed in 1988, in which Apple claimed its rivals illegally copied Macintosh computer screen displays.
