Hardware, Embedded Systems Now this is interesting news that hit my inbox at 2:22 AM (don't ask). It seems like the concept of selling Mac clones is more lucrative than many have anticipated, as I've just been informed via email that the German PearC has expanded its business into the BeNeLux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg) and France. Together with the news that Psystar emerged from chapter 11, it looks like the market for Mac clones is more lucrative than many of us had imagined.

Not that I disagree with your overall point, but you are not buying a cd that you can do with whatever you want, you are buying a software license, they are two different things.

An example of this is that if you buy a book you are not allowed to photocopy the whole thing and then hand out the copies without the consent of the owner. Or if you buy a DVD, you are not allowed to play it in a movie theater without paying additional licensing costs. These are restrictions on what you can do with the content (not necessarily the media) post sale.
