Legal Apple has the right to continue restricting its operating systems to its own hardware thanks to a decision handed down by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday. Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder wrote in her opinion that Apple's Mac OS X licensing agreement was indeed enforceable against Psystar, which had sold non-Mac computers with Mac OS X installed.

No...I would say you own the copy of the software. Once you have purchased it, the physical software package belongs to you.

If someone were to break into your house and steal your copy, the police would consider you to be the victim, not Apple.
