The OSx86 Project has re-opened its forums, following last week's legal tug-o-war with Apple, who slammed the site with a court order to force it to remove some links.

The site administrators have now removed the offending links and the site is fully operational.

A message on the site confirms it was subject to Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) legal pressure from Apple over links to installable versions of Mac OS X 10.4.4. This version of the OS had been hacked to work on non-Mac chips.

"Apple is certainly well within its rights to protect their OS and we have always supported it in this effort," the site reveals, adding that it exists to serve as a place where users can discuss Apple's Intel transition.

"So that's the story. Apple doesn't "have it in" for our site; they were simply concerned with a few links posted by our members. Those links have been removed and we're back," the site report concludes.
