Legal The legal back-and-forth between PsyStar and Apple is slowly but surely moving into the twilight zone. Not too long ago we had Apple going all black helicopter on PsyStar claiming people and/or companies other than PsyStar are involved in the clone maker's unlawful practices, even though Apple could so far not name any of them because, well, they don't know who they are yet. If that wasn't enough, PsyStar now claims that Apple's copyright on Mac OS X is invalid.

"You do know that anyone who buys a retail copy of OS X is assumed to own a Mac, and thus is buying an upgrade, when Apple starts selling Macs without Mac OS X pre-installed, then your claim (or Psystar's) makes sense.


The most nonsensical statement in the history of EVAR. Mac OS X retail is a full functioning product, and nowhere on the box does it say it is an upgrade or that you need to own a Mac before you may run it. In addition, no store clerk has ever mentioned it to me, even though I've bought several retail copies of Mac OS X.

This is an argument thought up by Mac zealots affected by the RDF. It's such utter nonsense, it makes me wonder how it even survived this long.
"

Um, the box states:
Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor
