Hardware, Embedded Systems Just when you thought you saw it all. So, we all know about Psystar, the two lawsuits between them and Apple, and all the other stuff that's been regurgitated about ten million times on OSNews alone. Well, that little company has taken its business to the next level - by announcing an OEM licensing program.

Why someone can sell your software without your hardware;

You chose to sell retail copies of your software off the store shelf without your hardware.

In countries where EULA related law is more rational, this means that the purchased retail unit becomes the property of the consumer will all rights provided by copywrite there in. Your EULA which removes rights from copywrite is thus over-ruled by the copyright law and probably laws invalidating post-purchase contracts.

The question of the EULA's validity remains in the US though that is one key item making this case worth watching closely.
