“Muzzle, a Dutch Hackintosh community site, has posted an interview with Davide Rutigliano, the co-creator of the EFI-X hack dongle and CEO of Art Studios Entertainment Media. Davide weighs in on the legality of the product and on what its future may be,” Filip Truta reports for Softpedia.
“‘…We implement real EFI in our device. There is nothing that links our product to the hack world… Yes, it is [legal]. We made sure to create a product that goes in the same direction of all other computer companies and not against them in any way,’ Rutigliano said,” Truta reports.
“It is well known that Apple’s EULA strictly forbids PC owners to run OS X, and that only Apple computers should be able to boot it. However, Davide reveals that, unlike Psystar, they’re selling something else,” Truta reports. “‘It is possible that we will go to court with Apple, but most likely supporting them, in case we ever find out that someone is selling PCs with our module installed. Selling a computer that can boot OS X is a unique right that only Apple has. And we enforce it.’ Davide explains.”
