I've been thinking about this, and the only conclusion I can come to is Bill's giving up (thank God).

But I think the important thing we can take from this is Bill McEwen's out of here.

Hope you're right.  I took it the other way, that Bill's just trying to court a new supplier of paychecks for doing nuthin.

Didn't know Ben was a lawyer. Pretty cool, heck why not Hyperion they're actually doing something!

Another reason that this Amiga trade name is not in demand:  Certainly a buyer would like to have exclusive use of the name, but AmigaOS and AmigaOne are already being used legally by others.  Kinda takes away from it?

That would require a prior agreement. If Amiga Inc.actually has more than one owner, competitive bidding for the property would make it difficult for Bill to require his employment as a condition of the sale.

Edit - The latest statement I've seen on this situation states that Amiga Inc. is seeking "venture capital".
This may not indicated a sale of any IP or trademark. Rather, Mr. Bill may be trolling for someone else to finance his endevors
