Yes I'm aware of that, but that kind of agreement isn't valid in Sweden.


That would be tantamount to allowing software piracy in Sweden. The Mac OS X license agreements are contained in a PDF file here:

There is a Swedish language agreement for sales in Sweden. Using on-line translation tools, it appears to be similar to what's already been stated; use of the software consistutes acceptance of the agreement. If you do not agree, you are requested to return the software. Presumably, the retail materials contain this agreement, and I'm sure there is digital copy that is presented and must be agreed to before use.

I'm sure that Apple has very good lawyers who drafted the license agreements and are aware of Swedish law. While what you are doing may or may not be in violation of any licenses, your position that "clicking yes or no is not a handshake or oral agreement acording to Swedish law" seems dubious and ill-advised.

Consider what you're suggesting: If EULA's and license agreements simply weren't valid in Sweden, then what would prevent massive piracy from occuring? I would assume that if license agreements in Sweden weren't enforcable, someone would be setting up their own software copying business.

...and if that happened, I would expect software companies to change their license agreements in order to prevent it.
If you are under 18 you can't make any legally binding agreements without your legal guardians permission.
This list is great for many reasons. This thread is not one of them. Trying to convince people to use Hackintosh is about as ridiculous as using on-line translation tool to deliver a rendition on Swedish law.

Surely there is a better forum to debate this?  Like off-list...
