Legal The legal back-and-forth between Apple and clone-maker PsyStar continues to develop, with the latest news being a move by Apple - the Cupertino company has invoked something with many already predicted Apple would call upon: the DMCA, or the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. This was done in an amendment to the original suit, filed in July this year.

They are only making fake Macs if they copy the design & call them Macs. Otherwise they are just building PCs capable of running the same software as a Mac, and offering a customized software installation service.

Every step of the way, no law is broken. Indeed, most of what they have done is explicitly protected by law.

Go Psystar - I'd never buy one of your machines, but I'm in your corner on this one - all the way!

exactly right. If the DMCA existed back when the clone makers reverse-engineered the IBM PC we'd all still be using IBM branded machines - or ironically Apple ones.
