Legal Now that all the nastiness of the discovery phase is behind us in the Apple vs. Psystar case, both parties are trying to get the case settled before it goes to court, much like the recent Vernor vs. Autodesk case. Both Apple and Psystar have filed motions asking for a summary judgement.

The GPL (and other open source license) and EULAs rely on many of the same legal principles. Which, if you knew anything about contract law, you'd understand. Now, go do some actual research on how the Autodesk ruling and first sale rights with respect to software will effect redistribution licenses like the GPL.


Oh, you mean like this?

The GPL is NOT, I repeat NOT, in ANY WAY like an EULA.
