Legal When PsyStar announced they would be offering their own Macintosch clone, pre-installed with Apple's Mac OS X Leopard, they opened up a whole can of worms. Despite the fact that the company itself was shrouded in mystery and dubiousness, the possible implications of their actions sparkled an interesting debate here on OSNews as well as other discussion venues: can PsyStar and its users just discard Apple's End User License Agreement for Leopard? Instead of relying on my own limited layman's understanding of Dutch Common Law, I decided to contact Dutch legal experts, and ask for their opinions on Apple's EULA, and EULAs in general.

Thom, I'm glad you took the time to actually seek advice from legal professionals. Too often laymen and tech minded people don't bother to find out what the law actually states, or how it is commonly interpreted by the courts, but operate on how they feel what the law ought to be. As bad as that attitude is when posting on anonymous internet discussions, it's infinitely worse when there is a possibility that you might actually wind up in court.
