@Lou

There is a lot happening in "real time" imo.
I happened to catch this when the Cloanto filing for Amiga Forever was removed from the euipo registry, yet although Hyperion show Workbench registered to them, the Cloanto filing still remained.
What I'm obviously saying is that the situation is fluid and perhaps more is to come.
We'll see...

atm, this is still true. You can confirm this here:
Source search
Then enter "workbench" in place of Amiga Forever.

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

Something is afoot which we Amiga serfs no little of as of yet.

The Amiga Forever trademark is especially surprising.

Re: post 385 (the filing for Kickstart trademark by Hyperion, which I only discovered much later)

Source

As with the other 3, there exists an earlier Benelux filing for Kickstart trademark by Hyperion:

Benelux search seems to have changed, so:
https://www.boip.int/en/trademarks-register
then enter "Kickstart"
You should see a list currently 6 items:
click on "1014998" and that should take you there.

I only mention this because it was stated in prior posting that Benelux registrations were a case for euipo (Europe in general) registrations. Since the other 3 trademarks I mentioned on the last page follow that path, it is possible Kickstart will follow that same path.

@number6

its kinda funny Hyperion now have Amiga Forever trademark, so does that mean they could stop Cloanto from selling there software in Europe?

Plus then could'nt Cloanto to the old trick and rename it Workbench 5.0 or something.

It pretty messy and very silly, after all who ever got the rights I think we the community now really define what we think what is Amiga related or not, not its branding. and if this all got really messy I think I would support AROS more.

@amigang

I've no doubt said this many times before.

This is merely public information that I find and share. I draw no conclusions from it.
Of course some of this is "puzzling", but I do not believe you can draw a conclusion from it regarding any sort of final resolution regarding ownership.

Nothing in this thread should change one's view about their hobby, imo.
If you enjoy development, continue to develop.
If you enjoy being a user, continue to use and enjoy your platform of choice.
If a product becomes available that you feel worthy of purchase, consider that as well.
