An embarrassing oversight in the Safari licence, means those using the browser in Windows are violating Apple's terms.
According to the Safari licence agreement users are only allowed to install the Apple browser on "a single Apple-labeled computer at a time", meaning that those running it on Windows are violating the licence.
The oversight will undoubtedly come as an embarrassment to Apple, just days after it was hauled over the coals by Mozilla boss John Lilly for using its iTunes updater to install the Safari browser. A practice Lilly described as being akin to malware distribution practices.
Apple says it has now updated the licence.
