    Commodore -> Escom (1995):
    dubious


    Don't think so. Yeah, some of the stuff Hembach did was dubious... but keep in mind, he was only Trustee of Commodore GmbH. He initially sold the Commodore trademark to ESCOM, even though he didn't have the authority:

    The final sale was for all of Commodore's intellectual properties, and certain inventories. Hembach had nothing to do with it.

    In retrospect, it's a shame Dell didn't win... at least they didn't kill themselves the way ESCOM did. Maybe something Amiga would have survived, maybe not.
