For all the ways that really count I am pleased that a good product is being invested in, more power to you all for that.
I am curious however, it was my comprehension that when something is placed in the public domain, either in whole or in part, it cannot then be removed from the public domain. At least that is the law in the United Kingdom.
I am unaware if AmiNet is considered public domain, and I do not remember reading any public license agreement of the uploaded application that limited its dissemination to the public.
If it is a legal manoeuvre or not, it is clear that by removing this application from what most consider the public domain and a primary outlet, A-EON have not garnered any good will to support their products or future projects with this action.
This is sad, I do have hopes for this company.
