Legal The legal back-and-forth between Apple and clone-maker PsyStar continues to develop, with the latest news being a move by Apple - the Cupertino company has invoked something with many already predicted Apple would call upon: the DMCA, or the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. This was done in an amendment to the original suit, filed in July this year.

They're reaching a bit, aren't they?
This is the first I think anyone's heard of Psystar marketing these technologies to third parties. Weren't they basically using projects developed by the OSX86 community in the first place? PC EFI and the like? As far as I'm aware, what Psystar did was build a system that had all OS X compatible hardware in it and install it for you. It was this latter part, I thought, that could be called into question by Apple. I don't believe Psystar was creating the hacks and/or boot loaders that was allowing OS X to be run on their systems. Am I mistaken about this? Do I have it all wrong?
