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.

Someone mentioned Finland. I know EULAs were tested in Danish law too, and rejected because they had to be presented prior to purchase and because mouse click are not binding signatures in Danish contract law.

I think I remember them being rejected in German supreme court too, and several other continental EU countries, but I don't have the reference.
