Lets say apple produced a block of ice (OSX), another supplier bought a bunch of ice from apple. The supplier then decided to melt the ice. The ice is no longer ice but it is a new product called water (Hackintosh). The supplier then chose to give away water at the local park. Even though the ice and water are chemically the same they are both a different product. The supplier gave permission for the water to be distributed. Therefor the interaction between the consumer and the supplier does not put the consumer at fault.

You're correct, and that's the reason why the "derivative works" right exists. It prevents people from making a trivial change to something and redistributing it claiming it to be a new work.

Using the OSX86 disc and installing it isn't illegal but the second you download the iso then you're breaking the law, as you can only download the iso from torrent sites. So overall, Yes

There isn't a digital download of OSX available from Apple? It's 2010 already.
