They are still selling products,  regardless I want an andriod gingerbread amiga phone.. lol sorry Apple.

But they are not directly selling it on the web, all you get to do is ask for a quote.  You might be able to get a really good deal if they are pushing to liquidate their stock of "Amiga" items.

My guess that is McBill took stock instead of cash for the license agreement.  I would wager that as soon as iContain moves the last of their "Amiga" label hardware, the icontainprotects will be turned off.  If they are having to go to alibaba, they just want a percentage of their money back during Xmas sales period.



I see you didn't post in this thread, so perhaps you missed it? Very recent, September, 2011 they opened up their own storepage.

Are these links active anymore? They seem dead on my end.

Ok, but why are they listing new phones (coming soon) if its liquidated stock?
I thought the object is they are selling branded Amiga products regardless they are not real Amiga OS.

Lets just say what needs to be said. Dammy is all butt hurt because someone is competing in his "Amiga sticker on a PC" business.

No, I didn't see it.  I was told earlier this year that the Amiga license was withdrawn from iContain.  What iContain had produced up to that point in time (or afterwards, they probably can get away with it for now) probably would be protected under the original license agreement.  BTW, icontainstore.com seems to be down so it might have been a quick throw away site to dump stock which maybe why stock is now on alibaba.

Dunno, just going by what I was told.   Might be another legal pissing contest brewing, McBill at his finest. :rofl:

ok and just FYI,
I'm sure you can get the idea from that thread. These items were priced out as opposed the other "inquiry" page mentioned.

Ah, no.  I really don't give a rat's rear end about iContain, TBH.  If they are having to sell on alibaba.com, business is not doing very well.

From the chaotic manner this is all happening, I wouldn't be surprised that attorneys are involved to some extent.   We know what happens if McBill touches something...

I found the store in September, but honestly had not checked the links since. So, if it HAS been taken down, that would place the time somewhere after September 22.

I'm an idiot on law, but if the IContain store was not moved, but taken down, what makes it different from a legal perspective to be able to offer the stock on Alibaba?

I dislike all rapists of the Amiga corpse the same, but man - I gotta laugh.

Dammy storming in with the McBill speech, all you left out Dammy was the screenie of:   Patron Saint of the Amiga, Barry of Florida, Lord of Commodore

I respect people more for trying to blatantly cash in than those trying to force feed some Jim Jones style mantra down ones throat.  But hey, buy and use whatever works for you.

If I am going to be bent over and raped, I like enough warning that I can tighten my belt rather than some clown doing the smoke and mirrors tricks.

IANAL, but the products there were created during the license activity would still be valid licensed products.  Selling products on your own web site could be considered actively marketing and promoting your product that you no longer have a license for.  Having it on a third person site removes that threshold.  That a much quicker way of liquidating old stock. ;)
