    Sorry for this silly question, bit I read a lot of threads where the point is to clone a HD to one another. When doing so, with the applications installed, does it mean that the copy is fully functional, applications are copied and run despite protection codes, etc.. ?? It means that everyone can clone its applications on someone else HD and up and running ?

    One can, but if it involves paid software to be on a Mac, where the owner has no license for that software, then that is piracy.

    It's a violation of the EULA. It may or may not work depending on the hardware on the target machine.
