Does the Mac Lion License allow installation on non-Apple hardware?

I heard recently that the Mac Lion license allows users to install it on non-Apple hardware, such as in a virtual machine running in Windows or Linux. Is this true? I can't find any information on it, with one exception. At Apple - Legal the Lion licenses refer to Snow Leopard (inside the pdf's) and say that you can't install on non-Apple hardware.
I'm interested because I want to know if I can run Lion in a VM in Linux.

It's a no to non-Apple hardware but a yes to VMs
You can run LIon in up to two VMs BUT they have to be running on a Mac running Lion. VMWare officailly supports it.
So no chance of running Lion in a VM under Linux I'm afraidExternal hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
