Hardware, Embedded Systems As if selling non-Apple labelled computers with Mac OS X pre-installed and licensing the technology to do so to third parties wasn't enough, Psystar has now moved ahead and has started offering its Rebel EFI package for everyone to buy and use. It makes it possible for just about anyone to install Mac OS X on a non-Apple labelled computer.

Any written contract is based on that people can read and agree on it _before_ buying something. Just calling something "contract" does not make it a contract.

Lately I see messages like "When buying this you agree on the license on the CD in the box." and that is plain rubbish and void, at least where I live.

If you were presnted with the license beforehand it would be different, yet that does not mean that the restrictions imposed would hold (depending on the country in fact).

The above is roughly valid (I'm not a lawyer) for consumers where I live, companies aren't guareded that much.
