9:35 AM - Apple wins in court
Pystar lost their case with Apple regarding the sale of Mac clones. The EULA was upheld in court. Most people assume EULAs would not hold up in court. You can't read them before purchase, and many including Pystar assumed that first sale doctrine would protect them. This legal victory is a new era in software distribution because the software industry has been given the green light to write very nasty EULAs.
I did not agree with Pystar selling Macs. I had hoped they would previal on the EULA aspect of the case as it would have been better for consumers.
