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.

Apple's complaint is that Psystar has "circumvented OS X's copy protection scheme". In order to make that complaint, Apple would have to prove that Mac OS X has, in fact, ANY copy protection scheme at all.

Checking that the hardware is made by Apple does NOT constitute a copy-protection scheme, as it does not stop discs being pirated between Macintosh owners.
