I would imagine that if Macs gain the popularity and customization of regular PC's Apple may eventually find the need to preform some sort of activation to verify that the OS on their systems is a purchased one.

For now though a boot legged copy of a Mac OS doesn't seem as popular to want over a Microsoft one.

I do find the activation quite silly as the real thieves are not going to call in for activation they are just going to crack code and go on, it seems it mainly catches innocent people who didn't know they purchased a bad copy of Windows.
