Apple It appears that Apple is not just going after Psystar when it comes to running Mac OS X on non-Apple branded computers. Wired's gadget blog was running a story, accompanied by a video, demonstrating how to install Mac OS X on a non-Apple netbook. After Apple contacted Wired, the website took down the video.

Why would they need to make the EULA bulletproof? All they need to do, is to have enough lawyers to make a breach too expensive. The EULA is certainly not valid in my country (a contract "signed" by opening a box I've bought? I don't think so), but Apple still sells their software and their computers here.

That may or may not be. But it sure is valid in the US of A, or they wouldn't have bothered writing it in the first place, would they?

And if it is, Apple may not be able to sue you (or threat to do so) if you install OSX to a "Hackintosh" but they sure can do so to someone who does it in the US.

(Which is true for both the Wired staff and Psystar)
