Apple sues Mom-and-Pop Shop for fixing bug in Mac OS X

"No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor". The license could possibly be 
construed as discriminating against fields of endeavor. The APSL places 
restrictions upon commercial usage that it does not place upon personal 
usage. The word "commercial" is specifically used as a criteria in 
determining which restrictions and conditions apply. IANAL.
