Hooray! Hopefully they will vanish and there will be no more ridiculous lawsuits aimed at stopping any kind of progress in the Amiga world.

That will not stop. They own the Copyrights and even if they don't have a business license, they can still take people to court.

I also have the two DVDs that came with the top-end Amiga Forever 2012 release, and such fascinating documentaries, from the launch of the Amiga to the failure of Commodore.
IIRC the version of the Deathbed Vigil they supply is a poor-quality VHS rip, not the remastered version you can get directly from Dave Haynie.

I've got the PAL DVD-R version of the 8th Anniversary Special Edition. It's the red one on his official site at http://www.frogpondmedia.com/dbv/index.html , NTSC ones are green. I don't remember what I paid for it, probably more than $20 though.

I ordered it directly from him about 15 years ago but it seems he is not selling individual copies directly anymore: "All retail sales are now handled by online retailers".

I don't know anything about the 21st Century Special Edition, I guess Dave's the best man to ask about that. His email address is on the site.

I bought several versions of Cloanto as I started with emulations after owning an A2000 back in the days. Since 2 weeks I again own an A2000 but I was amazed by the fact the KS1.3 gives me a yellow screen (according some people a floppy disk issue) when using the legal bought KS on a Gotek. The KS2.04 ADF is working fine. I downloaded from the web an ADF with KS1.3 and that was working. My goal is always to support good software and I like Cloanto, but.... (there is always a but)... why the legal version doesn't work and the 'illegal' does work... I thought I was safe... I knew it was the ADF because my original floppies were working. What to do?

Just use the downloaded versions. The Cloanto ROM's have been foobarred in one way or another on real machines for a few year now.
They're fine for emulation but not for real machine use, numerous problems arise when doing so.

Their software is clearly not good.

>I like Cloanto

Why!?

Tell them their product is defective and you want a refund. They have known it is broken for years and seem not to care; they are knowingly selling defective merchandise.
