Due to consultation with the EFF, we believe it prudent to remove any threads and/or posts that pertain to the downloading of leaked versions of Leopard.

As you all know, we don't support the sharing of copyrighted materials - we simply open this forum for you to talk about the things you like. When those things interfere with Apple's intellectual property, however, we have to act.

What does this mean? Well, it means that for the time being, everyone is free to discuss what they want about Leopard. Due to the recent court rulings regarding ThinkSecret et al, we believe that Apple will allow discussion of upcoming features by those not bound by a non-disclosure agreement.

The bottomline is this: we want to keep this forum a friendly and free place for you to discuss the things that matter to you the most. In order for us to do this, we have to take the common sense measures to protect you and ourselves.

Thanks for your understanding in this matter.

Yep, nice from the perspective of being HIGHLY illegal due to the nazi-esque legal system in place in the United States... Sure makes me proud to be a Canadian, where atleast I know I'm free... (and yada, yada, yada.)

You probably are... I don't know how many people are paying registred developers and went to WWDC. I'm assuming your a developer though...

Yeah, I went, I wasn't too happy with the Keynote, like most people, but, unlike most people, I got to fool around with Core Animation, so that's good.

I do wonder if we will see a crackdown by Apple when this new leaked build will come down to the average bittorrent trackers. Previous Select (non-WWDC) builds were always pretty heavily hunted.

Really simple
1) You like the software so you think it worth its money and you pay for it (because they have made a good job).
2) You think the software is too expensive for what you get so don't use it, and use alternatives (like linux).

When you want to buy a car, you don't STEAL a lamborghini, you just buy a car that fit your budget.
When you want to buy some food but you think it's too expensive, you don't STEAL it, you just buy another one.

What happens if everybody use piracy software ?
How the new release of Mac OS X you are all crying for will be out with no money for developpers dude ?
