For reference, the prior 2 filings for the Amiga euipo mark:

Now they have everything they need to corner the European market for computer disk drives and RAM expansion cartridges for another decade. Except products. And a business.

I think you meant 1200 baud modems. (evil grin)

Quote:
When in 2006 Amiga Delaware had to file to renew the "Amiga" trademark at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in order to satisfy the requirement to illustrate that the name was indeed in active use on actual products, it had nothing better [114] than the photo of a 20-year old 1200 baud modem (a model from 1985-1986). By USPTO standards, this might be a fraudulent filing.

Again, you'll have to forgive me, as there is simply too much information to keep track of here.

Source page 6 of this thread

You'll note that AmigaOS, AmigaForever, & Workbench filings (euipo) were mentioned coming from Monard Law.

I failed to check for later euipo filings according to my quick check here of my postings.
Another filing was made months later, which I now include:

Kickstart

Current status - Application under examination

There are also several other changes which I need to further investigate before reporting.

@thread

Looking at:
Cloanto euipo filing for Workbench
and
Hyperion euipo filing for Workbench

We know from surveillance letters, objections filed, and "Communication of the date of commencement of proceedings to the opposing party" that both of these parties above were involved.

However, both filings now show a new surveillancce letter dated January 3, 2018.
Since they are obviously both aware of each other (Cloanto and Hyperion) this must apply to a new party as yet unmentioned.
Common sense might indicate that Itec LLC, who recently renewed the Amiga euipo trademark might be this new party.
Opposing opinions are always welcome.

Oh, and yet another Reed Smith attorney added to the list. That's the 2nd time they've added an attorney.

@thread

There is now more legal paperwork being thrown around in Europe than I can possibly keep track of atm.
This all follows, for point of reference, the Itec LLC renewal of the Amiga trademark in Europe, new surveillance letters, and the Amiga filing in the U.S. by the buyer of the Commodore USA remains.

You can refer to all the filing links in this thread for trademarks (euipo) from Cloanto, Hyperion, Daffy Duck and whomever else has Amiga ownership aspirations. heh.

In the case of the last 3 mentioned trademarks, they all read now as "registered" by Hyperion.

Additional info and any corrections always welcome.

Odd. Why would Cloanto withdraw opposition to trademarks that they clearly have been using for years and cede them to Hyperion?

I wasn't aware that Cloanto had ever used the AmigaOS or Amiga OS trademarks.

I guess because withdrawn they lost the trademark "Amiga Forever."


I guess they know they cannot win, or else they will not do this. I find it strange that "Amiga Forever" name should end up with Hyperion's hands, but I guess that you get when you mess around.
