Themes and Apple Legal


I think that the main reason that Apple has been killing themes is that all of the themes so far have been hacked versions of a file. Installing these themes could potentially prevent OS X from booting (happened to a friend of mine yesterday). Also these themes have just been the aqua theme with new colors. These "themes" have Apple copyrighted material and we all know how Apple feels about copyright infringement. I have a feeling that if someone made a theme that did not contain any Aqua or Platinum elements Apple probably would not care other than the risk to the system.

Just my ¢2 :),
If you added up all the two cents for every post saying this you would have around $10.

Personally I don't give a crap about themes until Cocoa uses the layo. I'm still hoping Apple uses a PDF-based theme format instead of pxm.
