Legal The legal case between Apple and Psystar has just taken another, very small turn. Psystar gained a small victory over Apple today, because U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup allowed Psystar to modify its counter-suit against Apple, after he had dismissed the original counter-suit. However, something more interesting came out of this ruling: the judge hinted at what would happen if Psystar were to win.

Hmmm I wonder how long it would take to break DRM before OSX was out on Hackintoshes again? Me thinks 24 hours....

Five minutes, but it would still solve the problem. Apple doesn't care what hobbyists do with BitTorrent. The Psystar case is about vultures using their investments against them, and if there were antipiracy circumvention involved in building the gray market machine, it would be a slam dunk DMCA case rather than a wishy-washy, gray area, extent of powers of copyright case.
