Legal This week, one of the most-commented stories on OSNews was the story about how 'Maxxus' cracked/hacked (take your pick) the Intel version of Apple's OSX once again. This sparked a lively debate over whether we should encourage Maxxus, or condemn his actions. I made myself clear from the get-go: I condemn his actions. Note: This is the Sunday Eve Column of the week.

Repeat after me: EULA is not a copyright license, unlike GPL. GPL restricts copying, not usage. EULAs attempt to do the latter.

GPL assume that the act of acquiring and using the software represents the user's acceptance of the license

Wrong. In GPL, copying and redistributing mean acceptance of the license. Not using.
