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.

That has absolutely nothing to do with OS X being pirated. OS X was not pirated by Psystar, they buy OS X retail disks for each machine on which they install it. The issue you're speaking of is the modified updater and/or modified updates, and that's another can of worms in and of itself. But that doesn't change the fact that the OS X Psystar installs for you is *not* pirated.
Apple's not going to get away with saying Psystar pirated OS X. The updater and updates are another matter, and if Psystar actually modified any OS X subsystems to make that work then Apple could have a case against them.
