Pystar made / make copies of Apple's intellectual property, modify it and redistribute it. Regardless of any moral arguments, that is blatant copyright infringement.
I sincerely hope that they get the book thrown at them and that said book is large and heavy enough to cause some serious pain.
Note: I don't like Apple's monopolistic lock-in and control-freak attitude to users of its kit which, in many way, makes Microsoft look like the good guys, but allowing blatant copyright infringement would just cause more software vendors to go down the intrusive DRM route to protecting their IP.
