Editorial Every few years we geeks have our own kind of popcorn show to watch: tech companies showing teeth to one another. This time around, it's Palm vs Apple. In all seriousness though, how ethical is the battle around iTunes?

This technique is more widely used than most of people here think.
* Routers clone MAC from NICs to allow them to circunvect old policies of ISP providers restrictions;
* OS emulators and console emulators DO the same - provide lots of "false" answers to programs to clone the environment they emulate (os signatures and etc);
* Also present on remote controls;
* More examples... I´m sure they exist.

Don´t think Apple will have a case to go for on court or, what would be worst, it could trigger a larger battle about what steps should not be allowed on reverse engineering.
