Apple liberalizes Safari license

updated 09:55 am EDT, Thu March 27, 2008

Safari license changed

Apple has quietly changed the licensing terms of the Safari web browser, reports indicate. While the Mac license remains unchanged, the Windows license has been altered from "allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time" to "allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on each computer owned or controlled by you." The revision date on the license is March 26th.

The new language follows reports which circulated yesterday, noting that the terms of the license were previously restrictive. Under Apple's old language, Windows users may technically have been prevented from using Safari, or else been given free reign for falling outside of the agreement despite having official Apple software.

    I think the extent of the article is"Apple fixes mistake in Safari license."

    What, you were expecting a press conference over what is effectively a typo?
