Apple versus MacBidouille

Apple demanded in an “amazingly aggressive email” that MacBidouille, a French Mac-fan website, remove links they posted to videos demonstrating how to run Mac OS X on Intel-based non-Mac hardware. The links in question, that were originally included to prove that hackers had managed to bypass Apple’s Trusted Computing Platform in order to make the developer version of Mac OS X x86 work on unapproved Intel machines, have been removed.

  • August 18, 2005: Marsal, Katie, Apple demands Mac sites remove OS X on x86 videos, Apple Insider:
    "Apple's legal department this week sent "aggressive" emails to several web sites that support and advocate its products solely because they linked to videos showing a hacked version of the company's Mac OS X operating system running on off-the-shelf PC hardware."
