I'd love to see Amithlon for sale legally - even now with years of no development it's a worthwhile piece of software...
...but it's never been legal to sell
1st - because the rights to the A.(st)inc IP were never secured, even if that was only because A.(st)inc were a bunch of tw*ts about it.
2nd - Bernie Meyer withdrew the licence to his contribution (most of it) when he got sh*fted over the A.(st)inc licensing issue.
Such a shame... AND this resulted in Umilator never seeing the light of day.
Generally there can't be much wrong with selling old stock but Amithlon is in a regrettably peculiar situation - can't be sold so does that make it the most abandoned of 'abandonware'..?
