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're not giving you a copy of osx that's been hacked and patched, they give you a complete osx install disc that's unmodified. What is modified is maybe the kernel and bootloader on the machine itself."

This statement contradicts itself. Yes, they are giving you a complete OS X install disc that is unmodified. The installed OS is also called distribution. It is being distributed on a new PC. If Psystar modified it, then Psystar is distributing changed copies of a work. Now whether or not they modified it is another story. My analogy has beeen proven in court enough times, google it. If they did not modify it, Apple is wrong. I understand you hate "The Man" and want to stick it to them. The thing is none of us have a clue on what Psystar did or did not do, unless we have an employee among us. The charges by Apple may be well off base, or they may be right on target.
