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.

Illegal if you count EULAs as law.

Fortunately an EULA is a contract, not a law. Violating a contract is not a crime.

Some people of the GNU extremist type will dismiss EULAs, contracts, licenses, copyrights, trade secrets, and anything proprietary as invalid.

None of these are "propreitary" and no, GNu extremists arent against licenses. That would be kind of counter-productive considering that the GPL is a license.
