No, they are not.

Don't be fooled into thinking that license is free, either. That's why the 8-Bit Guy got no response.
Last I recall, he did get response.

Mike: "Free? What is this 'Free' you speak of, Mr. Eight Byte Dude?"
You know the difference between free as in for free and free as in freedom?

Nevermind that you cannot even buy any of those, anyhow.

Also; saying "they [Cloanto] did exactly that" when all they did, when asked, was charge a licensing fee to use their logo and copyrighted binaries (that were not developed by Cloanto anyway), is yet another example of giving Cloanto FAR too much credit than they deserve.
It is giving them exactly the credit they deserve.

Quote:

You're confusing Cloanto's business model of Licensing (No risk/All reward/No initiative/No market research/Money from doing nothing).
You have no idea what Cloanto are doing or not, you are a sycophant with a stockholm syndrom.

So what you're saying is: While Hyperion couldn't touch the legacy IP, once 'new' legacy-based hardware started hitting the market, they were well in their right to make updates for the OS3?
What I am saying is that if Hyperion had all the rights they now claim to have, and had wanted and intended to develop OS3, they could have done so ten years ago. They didn't, and they also did not provide access to the actual IP holders, or anyone else for that matter, to the source code repos.



Quote:
Why is Cloanto still following in Amiga Inc's footsteps? He says he inherited the lawsuit. So why doesn't he drop it. Why doesn't he settle? Why stop development if he SO in favor of development? Hmm?
Because Hyperion stands in the way of development. Have you not noticed what the situation is for OS4?

Are you equally hostile to A-EON as you are to Cloanto? You should be, as they are supporting Cloanto with the goal of getting rid of Hyperion, so development of both OS3 and OS4 can take place under healthy conditions.

Since Hyperion can only use that ugly boing-ball to replace the copyrighted twin rainbow checkmark.
The Amiga tick/checkmark is not copyrighted/trademarked, noone cared about it since CBM.
