I think that depends entirely on where you live. If I am not mistaken you don't really have to bother about certain aspects of EULA's here in Sweden... you have the 'private usage' which would allow you to do pretty anything 'in-house'... running your purchased MacOS, somewhat patched, on your x86 computer, for example... just as even though Nintendo claims you are not allowed to make backups of your SNES cartridges you can do that legally over here... (but not spread the backup out-of-house).
Don't take my word on it, though... since I do not know the law by heart... but as far as I have taken part of information on the subject (newspapers, tv and other media) that is the way it should work over here.
