Announcement   Announcement : Genesi sue amiga.inc!!
   posted by L8-X on 4-Feb-2003 23:57:28 (1756 reads)
In a comment on ann.lu Bill Buck and Raquel Velasco confirmed that Genesi SARL has taken legal action against Amiga Inc. because of breech of contract:



"MorphOS IP is 100% legal. Any concerns or questions can be emailed to us directly. All suggestions to the contrary are complete FUD. Neither, Amiga Inc. or any of the AmigaOS4 signatories have any legally supportable evidence to the contrary.

Having said that, Genesi has taken legal action against Amiga Inc. in Federal Court (Washington State) for breech of contract (FACT). We are expecting a favorable result (OPINION)."

Bad move at least for the community, which is likely to become even more disenchanted and polarised.


*Sigh*.. if only thinbgs had turned out differently in 1994 .

Hang on, let me get this straight. Who is taking legal action against

It seems Gensisi (thendic france) had a licence from amiga.inc to use amiga.de on certain devices (no mention of which) but since the h/w hasn`t surfaced they (I suppose) want to use pegasos, but since this h/w isn`t in the original licence A.inc has not agreed.
