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.

Yeah, I was just speaking on how it would become a matter of the courts in the possible favor of Apple.

Sadly, any given law and how that law is enforced are two different beasts. Some things which are not law can be enforced in court via contractual obligations, such as non-disclosure clauses.

The limits imposed deal mostly with the fact that no one can contractually be required to violate any law, beyond certain rights that can never be signed away (that few know about).

Of course, I'm not a lawyer, and my understanding is rather "street," but I think I have better handle on it than the average. As usual, I am always grateful for any and all proper clarifications / corrections, so thanks!
