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 are selling illegal clones (fake Macs).

No they're not, they're selling commodity hardware with a perfectly kosher copy of OSX pre-installed. It's not the same as a clone.
Just because there's a clause in a EULA saying "you cant do X" that doesn't mean it's a valid contract clause. What if it said that you have to give your first-born child to medical research? This is why we have contract law.
It is also worth noting that violating an EULA is not illegal, it's a contract violation.
