Is the Apple idea that our app is safe without DRM in that the world 
can only get our app by procuring it through the Apple Store and 
downloading and using the app inside a MacOS walled garden (the 
equivalent to the iOS's)?  Hence p2p copying is impossible on the 
client/user end (unless the walled garden is jail-broken, in which 
case we consider this free viral marketing!).

Meaning that the meta-model is that Apple will introduce some sort of 
safe zone within the current free-for-all MacOS environment, where 
the user has protection, the producer needs no DRM, and Apple of 
course are the unilateral rule makers, police and law court.

If there is to be a MacOS walled garden, what impact does this have 
on CCL use for developers, will our work be in anarchy/freeland as 
now, hence all this is moot?
