Hardware, Embedded Systems Now this is interesting news that hit my inbox at 2:22 AM (don't ask). It seems like the concept of selling Mac clones is more lucrative than many have anticipated, as I've just been informed via email that the German PearC has expanded its business into the BeNeLux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg) and France. Together with the news that Psystar emerged from chapter 11, it looks like the market for Mac clones is more lucrative than many of us had imagined.

That's okay. Nothing forces Apple to sell copies (!) to HP or Dell. But apparently, Psistar and PearC are still able to buy copies.

That is fine, however:

But there is also really no law that forbids them to install PC's with those copies.

…and yet it is in the courts as we speak.

The PearC is not in courts and the legality of its business has until now not been disputed by Apple.

This is indeed unlike the Psystar case, but nobody has denied that the U.S. situation is different, the law system is totally different there.
