I was wondering when they would get hit...
To be honest I was surprised it hadn't already happened.
They found a method on how to install OS X onto none-Apple PC's from the 10.4.4 restore disc that comes with Intel iMacs, then POOF... DCMA
Whether or not the DCMA had been brewing a while though, I don't know, seems good timing if not
The information is still available, and patches are present on Maxxus' site and plenty of 'other' sites, there's just one less central point for it all. That's if they stay down/clean/boring, anyway
They just need to host outside of the USA, DMCA becomes moot then.
It's interesting that of all the DMCA notices I've responded to while at work and told the sender that DMCA doesnt apply and that we'll leave action to the server owner to decide, none of them have ever responded.
DMCA seems to be some kind of fire and forget thing to me.
Yup, looks like they're with ThePlanet at the moment though.
Yahoo news reports on hidden messages placed by Apple into Mac OS X for Intel to warn would-be hackers/pirates. The system files of latest version of Mac OS X revealed a short poem:
Apple confirmed that it had placed these messages into the Mac OS software hoping "it, and many other legal warnings, will remind people that they should not steal Mac OS X."
ThePlanet will take their server down. I bet they are looking for a place to host the new instructions outside of the United States of America.
Any place that already has them mirrored?
OSx86 team responds:
Yeah, the forums are back up.
No need, they're confirming with any legal requests they receive.
Oh, and all the patches etc created by Maxxus are already hosted on (his?) Russian site
It's pretty easy to get it to work from what I hear and that the speed is great.
Speed was great. The original leaked beta's of OS X for Intel where stripped to feck and therefore booted nice and fast, and ran well.
New versions are just the same as the version being released for Apple machines, and run the same (unless you have an insanely powerful set-up). Just remember speed is always nice on a fresh install, most of the llama's using the hacked version aren't using as their day-to-day OS and therefore don't bog it down with apps etc.
