Hardware, Embedded Systems When Psystar announced it Rebel EFI package, the company was quickly accused of simply taking open source code, repackaging it, and selling it for USD 50. While selling open source code is not a problem, not making the source code available if the license demands it is. Netkas, famous OSX86 hacker, and a Russian site are now claiming they have found the smoking gun.

Yup, same here, as said in the article.

Then again, it is also a breach of the APSL if you do not include a copy of the license with the software in question - I have my copy of Rebel EFI, and as far as I can tell, there's no copy of the license. That in and of itself is already a breach of the license.

That is, assuming Netkas is right, and in all honesty, there's little reason to doubt him. He knows what he's talking about.
