Is it true that Apple has loosened their licensing restrictions on Snow Leopard to allow them to run on a Virtual Machine on a new MAC running Mountain Lion?

I read that Apple has loosened their licensing restrictions on older MAC OS versions like Snow Leopard.  This would allow you to run Snow Leopard on a new MAC running Mountain Lion by using a program like Fusion or Parallels to create a virtual machine.  Does anyone know if this is true?


I would like to upgrade to a new MAC but can't.  Some of the software that I use withthe company I work for is PPC based and there will not be updates for at least another year.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
