Actually, it becomes apparent that few here have a decent understanding of legal issues.
Hyperion has an exclusives license to continue to develop AmigaOS.
It also becomes apparent they they either legally control OS3.1, or have (without challenge) assumed so for all applications outside of prior licensed uses like Amiga Forever.
Amiga Inc is actual forbidden from pursuing said development or the development of a similar product.In the event of the demise of Hyperion Entertainment (if European courts work in any fashion to courts in the rest of the world) that license would not revert to Amiga Inc.
AND the license probably is transferable to an assignee.[ Edited by Jim 15.02.2015 - 11:03 ]
