Can an SLA constitute copyright misuse?
Abstract: In 2008, Apple sued a company that had developed a “master image” of Apple software on a non-Apple computer and then shipped its computers with a copy of that master image installed as the operating system. The defendant contended that Apple had misused its copyright by requiring licensees to run their copies only on Apple computers. This article shows why the court sided with Apple. Citation: Apple Inc. v. Psystar Corp, No. 10-15113, Sept. 28, 2011 (9th Cir.)
