I don't think that Apple did this to be malicious. They licensed the technology for Rosetta from Transitive. It may be that after a certain number of years the license ran out. Also, the Transitive company was purchased by IBM, and IBM may simply not have wanted to license out the technology to Apple.
There are programs to migrate your archived e-mails from Eudora to Apple's Mail (which comes with OS X). To transfer Eudora data to Mail, you can use:
Emailchemy - Convert, Export, Import, Migrate, Manage and Archive all your Email
E2A (free, $5 donation requested)
HabakukSoft - E2A - Eudora to Adressbook group importer
can import all of your Eudora contacts into Addressbook for use with Mail or any other e-mail program that uses Apple's Addressbook.

Or, if you are on a budget, you can do it all for free using Thunderbird as an intermediary application. It includes all of the translators that are necessary. (That is, you can transfer everything to Thunderbird, and then transfer everything in Thunderbird to Mail.):
