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.

EULAs are contracts + they are not valid in some countries (depends on civil law specifications of what a "contract" exactly is, and when is it considered valid, e.g: acceptance details for parties etc.).

So somewhere, it might be completely "legal" (as explained above my post, none of what you say is "illegal") to actually do what EULAs forbid (thank God, because I hate being restricted AFTER buying something).
