Legality May Not Be PsyStar's Biggest Problem

Back to the assumption that PsyStar is even for real, Wired and some lawyers they interviewed say selling OS X on non-Apple hardware may not actually be illegal. According to these sources it is just a breach of contract which could be a much smaller problem.

Now let's say PsyStar isn't what it claims to be. Let's say it's a scam. If it is true that cloning Mac hardware via commercially available components and selling OS X on the resulting PC is not illegal a legit company can start doing it tomorrow.

Suddenly, I no longer care whether or not PsyStar is for real.
