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.

It is indeed "illegal" to violate even a private contract

The terms "legal" and "illegal" are most commonly used with criminal law, not civil law. It's a bit of a split hair though. It is, however, not a crime to violate a contract.

as the law specifically dictates that we abide by the contracts we enter in to.

It also dictates what can go into a contract and what constitutes valid (or legal, if you wish) contract clauses.
It's not "illegal" to violate an "illegal" contract.
