Soooo funnny.   Yet another company ready to drag the Amiga name through the mud.  I would rather never see an Amiga branded product again than see these muppetts releasing Amiga branded Crap.


Given Amiga Inc disappeared into oblivion I think it's safe to say this is not legally branded anything, just some no talent ass clown making announcements he has no right to, and which are difficult to confirm with Amiga Inc.

It's so weird, if he tried to sell these legitimately on ebay he would get his listings removed for selling counterfeit/copyright infringing goods....but out in the WWW wild west of business.... lol and what makes it worse is all these other so called intelligently run websites picking his promotions/press releases ;)

*shakes head in disbelief*

I may have misunderstood here but it seems Hyperion and A-Eon have invested significant money developing both new Amiga OS and hardware (X1000) only for Commodore USA to 'reunite the Commodore and Amiga brands', slap a sticker on some generic PC hardware and (at least in the eyes of the public) make OS4.x and the X1000 seem insignificant compared to the legitimate 'Commodore Amiga'.

This seems very underhanded and I thought trademark disputes had been resolved, ultimately preventing this sort of thing.  If the 'Amiga' trademark wasn't included in previous settlements then I guess Amiga Inc & Commodore USA have every right to do this regardless of the detrimental affect to the Amiga world.

I sincerely hope this doesn't detract from the X1000 launch.  Things are confusing enough as it is with Aros/MorphOS/AmigaOS & PPC/x86 divisions in the Amiga world.  This can only add to the confusion - especially where the press and general public are concerned :(

This does not bode well :(

This is blatant violation of the rights Hyperion Entertainment secured in the settlement agreement with Amiga Inc., Itec and Amino.

(source)

Not another lawsuit!  Just what we all need, I don't think!

I have to say, I always found the naming of the AmigaOne X1000 rather clumsy.  Surely if they had the right to the Amiga name, then they'd have called it "Amiga X1000"?

I'm not sure I can agree with Hyperion here.  Has anyone looked closely at the settlement to see if this scenario is covered?  From memory, I thought this scenario was a distinct possibility.

Historically I've not had faith in anything Amiga Inc has been involved in. However I do like AROS. What a quandry.

And if Hyperion sends in the lawyers, I suspect yet again it will all end in tears.

I see Commodore USA has updated their website. Too bad they still haven't figured out that you can't just take pictures from wherever you want and stick them on your site.

From memory Hyperion only won the right to use the AmigaONE name, hence the naming of the new X1000.
 
I am pretty sure they dont hold anyhting over the Amiga name, but there seems to be something in the agreement that prevents amiga Inc and commodore USA doing what they are doig as  they say its against the agreement.
 
I thought things had been too quiet with Poeple seeming to mainly be over the whole OS4/MorphOS argument and no lawsuit going on.

IIRC, Hyperion has the name AmigaOne (and not Amiga as Trevor has stated previously), AmigaOS, Amiga OS, Amiga OS4 through whatever version they wish.  Having said that, there is no reason why AI can't issue license for Amiga with whatever OS name you want on it as long as it's not AmigaOS.  Or am I not remembering this correctly?  No, I'm not going to put enough effort into rereading the agreement again. :)

Not really, I have a lot of respect for the open source project that is AROS, I have no respect from some nobjockey putting up bullshit on the Commodore USA (ahem) website cashing in on the name of Amiga and the work of all the tireless talented individuals involved with all aspects of AROS.
