Who Owns The Rights To The Amiga?

I've come up with a great idea to bring the Amiga back. Is there anyone i can contact to get the ball rolling?

I think an Amiga Set Top Box would thrash the opposition(Playstation 3, Wii, X-Box). :-)

If it's not a joke you should get in contact with Amiga Inc (http://www.amiga.com/) Could be a bargain to get the rights right now

This was mooted years ago, and nothing ever happened.

I suspect a 'joke' post though.

Ho ho, 'hilarious'!

Yeah right. Where is the 30,000,000+ investment money to develop one?

Most of the kids today never heard of Amiga so the brand name isnt worth very much.

Just think how revolutionary for the user, being able to play Youtube Videos on a HDTV.

Plus for the developer it is an ideal situation where the user says for the apps/games/software using their mobile phone. Just like Apples App Store.

Prices: £111, £222, £333

AndreasM owns the rights to the Amiga. You should ask him for a license

I'd rather expect the second coming of Christ than hoping for anything usable/inteligible from this thread
