Psystar violates v8 EULA
The ongoing Psystar situation has revealed that the company is not only breaching Apple's license agreement, but also that of the EFI firmware emulation utility it uses to fool Leopard into installing. MacUser UK reports that Psystar is using the EFI v8 emulator without proper admission of the author, Netkas, and in clear violation of the software's license, which reads "Redistribution and use in binary form for direct or indirect commercial purposes, with or without modification, is stricktly (sic) forbidden."
Aside from a questionable explanation from Psystar, little has been said by the company to debunk rumors, and even more puzzling still is Apple's silence on the matter. Psystar has also been quite elusive and mysterious, by suddenly switching operating addresses to locations that don't appear to have anything to do with the company, and a distinct lack of history.
