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.

Depends on what Psystar did. If all they did was modify the hardware to run OS X then I don't think Apple has a case. Other case law supports Psystar reselling OS X however they wish. Even if they modified the software, I think Psystar is ok. No law says I can't sell Windows computers with Stardock preinstalled, which is basically what this covers. So I guess the real question comes down to what is someone allowed to do with the software they purchased.
