You tightwads killed the Amiga community so don't try to lay blame on everyone else.
So not Commodore or Escom then?

Piracy did not kill the Amiga. Every machine in history has suffered from piracy - certainly the PC hasn't suffered from it. 8-bit machines like the Spectrum and C64 had huge amounts of piracy but were still incredibly popular and loads of companies still supported them.
