@Senex

It's like ping-pong.

Now court listener shows an Amiga Parties' reply to response to motion. Pacer should have it tomorrow.

@thread

Just repeating this in the thread it really belongs in:
Amiga (uspto) trademark registration to Amiga Corporation

I realize people will keep posting "cloanto". So I guess I'll have a full time job correcting them.

again the recent timeline in summary and a 2nd time with supporting legal links

And once again I'll post my open invitation to those others who claimed ownership of the Amiga mark to the CEO of Intellivision...
Please step forward here and reveal yourself, so we can all have a good laugh. We could use one.

Amico Utubers are on the case

I guess this is 1 way for the "multiple" companies claiming ownership of Amiga to get some PR.

I spent a few seconds going over the manifest of devices I use in my life and where any of them might benefit from AOS. One struck immediately. Some types of 2D-3D manufacturing. Some mid to lower end systems have pitiful options and control surfaces. Certainly that gap could be filled by some other OS, but I could see AOS being an option to consider for some.

Realistic chance of that happening... probably zero unless I decided to do my own port.


@Number6

Thanks for your continuing work as the Amiga legal archivist.

@Plaz,

I spent a bit more than a few seconds and 3D printing came to mind, Amigas may work well for this.

User interfaces wouln’t be less pityful with AmigaOS under it, I really don’t see any benefit in using Amiga for any kind of printing.

@kolla

If one prefers scroll wheels, up down buttons, stringy linked text menus while lacking image file support, I would not presume to persuade them otherwise.

AmigaOS under it... you left out the gui on top of it, and other useful bits.

If you haven't kept up with the thread link in post #162 of this thread, you might find the timestamped section of the CFO interview interesting.

Re;posts #62 and #63 this thread on filings for Checkmark and Boing Ball trademarks;

Checkmark Registered Oct. 12, 2021

Boing Ball Registered Oct. 12, 2021

Direct links above to the certs now dead. I suspect issues at the site, since the status section for both -do- still show the registrations today.

Edit again: Direct links to certs work again.

I realize this may be confusing to some who don't know the details but...

Although Amiga Corporation has registered (and certificates of registration have been issued from uspto) for the Amiga trademark, and now also the checkmark and Boing Ball, this does not mean that Amiga Corporation can use the trademarks for branding.

Here is a confirmation from Intellivision CEO
This plainly illustrates why that matter is not settled either.

The lawsuits prevent Amiga Corporation from moving forward as Hyperion Entertainment CVBA still claim they own basically everything. The lawsuits trump any registrations the uspto files.
Until the outstanding motions (now 4 and counting) are ruled upon by the Western District Court of Washington State, the situation will not change.

Commodore is still dealing with a similar situation.

Just FYI...

just a quick question, would this effect amikit & a-eon use of the Amiga.org logo, I know Commodore gave permission for the site to use them trademarks, but a-eon has extended it use to other project. Just a thought, I so wish all this legal stuff was just dropped by all members and they just made good products for people to buy, let the community and fans judge them by that.

Until then better load up,

@amigang

I have not heard/read of a single issue regarding the Amiga.org logo and its use.

@klx300r

Thank you for the kind words.
As always, 1/2 the people want to have information while the other 1/2 believe non positive news hurts Amiga.
It's still lose/lose posting about these things...

Count me among those who appreciate all of the work that you do compiling this information.

Reading is an elective process. If someone isn't interested in the news, the option is there to simply ignore it.

the only reason I check here regularly is for updates from number6 - keep up the good work - you are a champion!


The Amico dudes are bonkers if they keep waiting for settlement. They should just pick a new name and jog on.

@dalek

Thanks.

Actually they have numerous trademark filings including "Intellivision Amico" which was never objected to.
So they are not only aware of the tactics of delay, they have options.
