Legal We've got some progress in the other legal case Apple is involved in. The California case, Apple vs. Psystar, is more or less a done deal, but the Florida case, Psystar vs. Apple, is only just beginning. As it promised it would do, Apple has now asked the court in California to either dismiss the Florida case, or transfer it to California. Apple is also asking for a permanent injuction against Psystar. Through this motion, we also gain some juicy insight into Psystar's sales projections - and more interestingly, how many machines the clone maker actually sold.

So then the issue is, why can you own a power drill when you can't own a record? I'm sure one can draw a line in there, I just don't know where.


You actually do own the record. You can sell that record or use it as a frisbee, and no one will care. What you do not own is the content of the record, the actual music or whatever plays when you put it on a record player. You can listen to it all you want, but it is not in your rights to then go out and perform the same thing without prior permission.
