Re: As stated...

It is illegal in Germany to apply terms to a EULA that weren't clearly readable on the retail box, before you get to the checkout (or in the case of mail order, before you open the packaging).

That is why a Hackintosh wasn't exactly illegal here, until they stopped selling retail copies of OS X - the relevant paragraphs in the EULA about not using it on non-Apple branded hardware were inside the sealed packaging and therefore could not be enforced in Germany.
