Hardware, Embedded Systems Just when you thought you saw it all. So, we all know about Psystar, the two lawsuits between them and Apple, and all the other stuff that's been regurgitated about ten million times on OSNews alone. Well, that little company has taken its business to the next level - by announcing an OEM licensing program.

I don't think you understand copywrite law nor this case.


That's a laugh.

OK, how about we turn over to someone who analysed the premise of this case carefully?

It even refers to a relevant case. And no, it's not the one most people around here seem to refer to (Vernor vs Autodesk). Why? Read the article to find out why.

MDY vs Blizzard has everything I keep saying Psystar vs Apple has. It has DMCA. It has copyright law. But noo, what do I know, I'm "ignorant and indoctrinated", to quote Thom.

Get it through your thick heads: EULAs used to be solely about click-through shrink-wrap contracts, yes. But the companies got smarter. They've pulled in copyright and DMCA. Software that is no longer sold but licensed. This changes things. How: we'll see when Apple vs Psystar is over. In the meantime, MDY vs Blizzard should give you and idea.
