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.

In the 1960s Rolls Royce tried to introduce contracts that would prevent purchasers from modifying their cars in a way that would lower the prestige of Rolls Royce. RR even demanded the right to buy back cars sold to 'undesirables' like rock stars. The UK courts threw these contracts out and declared an owner can modify any legally purchased product however they choose.
