Mac OS X Whenever we talk about Mac clone makers such as Psystar, we all more or less accept as a fact that Apple is selling copies of its Mac OS X operating system at a price lower than it would have been if Apple did not have a hardware business. Even though we treat this statement as fact - recently, I've been wondering: where is the proof?

I give Apple the benefit of the doubt here because they actually got hit with a fine under SOX a few years back.

Wasn't that for some strange stock option game they were playing?

In any case, SOX is one of those things that is largely interpretation - these days executives go way overboard in the name of SOX just to make sure they're not going to land in jail because they missed something.

It's pretty sad, really, as I've seen firsthand how a public company can do some pretty pointless and wacky, unreasonable things, in the name of SOX just to cover their asses. It's one of those things that basically punishes the innocent, like so many other laws out there.
