Hardware, Embedded Systems The Miami New Times News (try saying that out loud ten times in a row really fast) has a long story on the Pedraza brothers, the two men behind Psystar, which is located in Miami. The story details the brothers' youth, and, of course, talks a lot about Psystar and Apple. There is a lot of interesting stuff in there not covered before.

[QUOTE]This was perfectly articulated in the following quote:

Fred von Lohmann, staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a group that advocates for Internet free speech issues, thinks the brothers just might prevail. "We've lived 100-plus years with the basic proposition that if you bought it, you own it," he says. "We don't let vendors reach into your living room and micromanage how you use a product. Why should Apple get away with it?"[/QUOTE]

The difference being of course if we put it in our living room, reverse engineer it and then sell a product based on this reverse engineering... that _is_ a violation of copyright! and always has been! This is what they are doing.
