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.

I dont know about the legallity of a EULA or Copyright Law, and you are right on claiming that (I am no lawyer). But I am not talking about "Copyright law".

I just think that if there is an agreement upon a certain product that you have to accept in order to use it, and if you can return the software for refund if you dont agree with it, then you should just use it according to the agreement or not use it at all.

And I still dont see how can anyone (specially if it is one inside computer software market) agree that "Code is meant to be broken". It just doesnt sound fair use to me.

But you know... opinions diverge...
