    It was Amiga Inc. who sued Hyperion in April 2007. Hyperion merely countersued in June 2007 (as well as suing Amino in October 2007), before in turn being sued by Itec in July 2007 and even by the Frieden twins in July 2008. And it is Cloanto who is now suing Hyperion.

    > They sued Titan Computer

    Any more examples of Hyperion's "unnecessary litigation"?

    Any details on that?

    Any details on that?

    I'm not aware that the 2001 agreement would have given ownership of the "Amiga" name to Hyperion in case of Amiga Inc. bankruptcy, just (final) ownership of OS4.

    Edit: corrected date of the Frieden twins et al. v. Hyperion et al. lawsuit
    Edit2: added Hyperion v. Amino lawsuit
