This interpretation by TMHG points at the source of confusion: the freely available ROM updates
. Going by the background information available to us at amiga-news.de, it seems that by a misunderstanding in 2014 Cloanto had to assume that the according licence had been granted as applied for, and thus acted in good faith!
That the ROM was licenced thus was also included in the documentation of Amiga Forever. Now that it has become clear that there seems to have been a misunderstanding, it might be a good mid-term measure of course to create an alternative solution in WinUAE for initializing the emulated Cyberstorm turboboard (given that the actual content of the ROM isn't really needed without the physical board), but for now it is good that the continued usage is tolerated.
