Amiga.com is down! This is the end!

its official: http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/http://www.amiga.com Hope it goes @$$ up, and declares bankruptcy. Good riddance, it was such a let down. Let us all reminisce in the memories of Amiga Inc.'s EPIC FAIL!

Cloanto can legally distribute Kickstarts and Workbench all related to classics Amiga.....they have the rights
The pirates hidden by the name of AMiga INC AMiga Washington,Bill MC Even and all the other fakes Amiga scam companies ......they have the rights to go to the jail

anyways who cares about that....is like ask which owns the rights of the Sinclair Spectrum or the C64.....things that are dead like the Amiga

Sure, but this has nothing to do with the current holder of rights. It's time to release the WB/Kickstarts as freeware, NOW! But i think it will not happen too soon.

Because currently we are not allowed to distribute classic OS or kickstarts!
It would be good for the scene to get this ludicrous restriction lifted.

Cloanto purchased the rights of the classic Amiga and
they will not release as free Kickstarts or Workbench
because they make some money today with Amiga Forever package

Cloanto doesn't have the rights of classic AmigaOS or Kickstart, Cloanto have a license to distribute AmigaOS and Kickstart. The rights of classic Amiga is a mistery, according to amiga documents web (http://sites.google.com/site/freeamiga/). Jens Schoenfeld asked to Amiga Inc for a proof that A.Inc have the rights of AOS 3.1 and Kickstart .

Amiga Documents quote:
In Mr. Jens Schoenfeld's words, "Face it guys, the 'Amiga curse' is not about the Amiga. It's about the people who supposedly own the rights.

so....according to your post Claoanto have not the rights but legally can sell the product?
I don't understand.....
who's got the rights then? Bill gates?

personally I think...however I'm not sure..... that Amiga INC consider the classic Amiga dead and sell the rights of classics Amiga to Cloanto long time ago....around year 2000-2001

Amiga INC dedicated the time to the Hockey and others scams and to the new imaginary fantastic Amiga and then goes to bankrupt........even now they can't afford the website......that's all
