Thanks. So if we are to follow Cloanto's pattern of argument further than Cloanto does, Hyperion must have been infringing on Cloanto's copyright (supposedly obtained from Amiga Inc. in 2011/2012) since exactly that time.
Not that it matters, but the cinemaware deal was 2010, including Manomio's negotiations for required IP.Manomio CTO Stuart CarnieQuote:

Manomio is legally licensing the required intellectual property
I fully understand your putting more weight on the 1.3 ROM discussed above, but I feel it's also fair to ask "who licensed what to Manomio?" back in 2010 as well.
It's evident I need not ask "who licensed what to Manomio" again given that we have legal admittance.Quote:

the Kickstart to Manomio” and, plainly ignoring the specific grants in the Settlement Agreement,
It might be a stretch to state this affected Cinemaware as well, but since they were sued shortly thereafter and involved with the Hyperion/Manomio deal, I think it is fair to conclude since this affected Manomio, it might have affected Cinemaware as well. You can be sure developers were never paid either for this epic fail.
