Apple Computer appears to have invoked the Digital Millenium Copyright Act to stop the dissemination of methods allowing Mac OS X to run on chips from Intel and Advanced Micro Devices.
Yea that works. Everyone knows crackers are ALWAYS deterred by extra steps taken to prevent them from breaking copy protection.
Anyone remember a little company called DirecTV once upon a time boasted their encryption to be "hack proof"? "O Rly?" said the hackers...
Stuff like this is the equivalent of painting a big red bull’s eye on your ass. Tell crackers they "cant" and they WILL - that much faster. It will now become even more of a game to be the one to do it first.
