Even if we take the Paul C Clements analysis seriously.
Paul C Clements still has a problem with logic.
Paul C Clements proves in his analysis that Amiga Os 3.1 MAY have not been made on the basis of Amiga Os 1.3 and in his conlusion that's why Hyperion has not rights to Amiga Os 1.3.
Paul C Clements is wrong ofcourse.
If Paul C Clements proves in his analysis that Amiga Os 3.1 MUST have not been made on the basis of Amiga Os 1.3 he will be right.
In reality Amiga Os 3.1 was made on basis on 2.0 this on 1.3 and 1.3 is stil included in 3.1

@ppcamiga1

The point is, you are constantly writing things wich are completely wrong.

And then, you are against some great projects (I assume, because you lose business) and you do it without logic, without any facts.

I really don't like what you write in forums, because it's factually incorrect.

Quote:
What the Amiga parties are saying is "here is how we understood the terms of the agreement when we entered into it 10 years ago. And here is an expert in the field --- in fact, the very expert who wrote the very books providing the definition used in the agreement --- who states that that interpretation is reasonable". So Hyperion can either argue that that was the intended understanding in 2009, or Hyperion can argue that they had a different understanding of the terms. In the former case, the agreement has to be interpreted on those terms. In the latter case, there clear was no agreement, no meeting of minds. Thus, it is up to the court to determine which interpretation is reasonable --- and with the Amiga parties having provided not just an expert, but arguably the expert on the definition included in the settlement agreement, and Hyperion having provided zip, nada, nothing... well, if you were in their shoes, how would you decide?


Very impressed by this analysis. Would you perhaps consider giving a look at the court order from last May, which was brought up by Hyperion as some sort of big victory?

Order Granting in Part and Denying in Part Defendant's Motion to Dismiss in Part

In my armchair lawyer understanding, the judge did indeed rule that Cloanto (but not Amiga/Amino/Itec) lacks standing to bring a breach of contract claim because Cloanto was not a party to 2009 Settlement Agreement. However, I don't see how this changes anything for Hyperion, because the same breach of contract claims were also brought up by the other Amiga parties, and the judge not only did not dismiss those, but reinforced them by saying that although Cloanto can't enforce the Settlement Agreement, any party can indeed rely on the Settlement Agreement to determine Hyperion's rights under copyright and trademark law (which the Amiga parties inclusive of Cloanto and C-A have raised): "This finding does not preclude Cloanto from pursuing other claims against Hyperion related to copyright or trademark infringement, or from relying on the terms of the Settlement Agreement to determine Hyperion’s rights under copyright and trademark law."

I am inclined to interpret the same for the "Lanham Act" part: "The Court agrees with Hyperion that Plaintiffs have not shown that Cloanto has standing to pursue a claim for relief under the Lanham Act given the current arrangement." The "current arrangement" presumably having changed when C-A Acquisition Corp. joined the Amiga parties in filing its own lawsuit. However, again, I don't see how the Amiga parties' right to do the same (which they already did) has been prejudiced by this decision. Moreover, the judge seems to say that involving the Lanham Act is not even needed ("the Court disagrees with Hyperion... The Court has jurisdiction over the remaining contract claim between the Amiga Parties and Hyperion, and can rule that Hyperion has breached that contract without “scrutiny of the administrative acts of multiple foreign trademark officials.”")

I can see a narrow prejudice for Cloanto if it were to act alone, which is however irrelevant because it affects claims also brought up by its other Amiga allies. But Hyperion claims that this judgment was a victory for them, to the point of repeating several times (in the recent counterclaims) that it affected its Amiga adversaries with some sort of "prejudice". Are they right, or is it some sort of Hyperion/Ben reality distortion field?

What is your opinion? Is the judge maybe trying to narrow the case to breach of contract for the incumbent Amiga parties (Amino/KMOS/Itec) who signed the settlement agreement, and trademark and copyright for the new Amiga parties (Cloanto and C-A)?

Kulminator is still here. It's literally around the corner from where I live, say 200 meters. I walk past it almost daily.

I'm afraid it's about to disappear though.
The owner, whom I see walk around here, is in really bad shape. He's grown old.

Evert
