Ok, just a clarification issue here:
Are you saying that nobody actually knows who ownes the right to the Amiga Kickstart?
If that statement is true and can be proved, what is the point in all of us observing the issues of copyright and paying out money for a license, and not simply distributing said KS code? Are we not simply being, for want of a better word, "mugs"?
