Events   Events : EFIKA PPC entry-platform at EBV TechTrends 2006
   posted by nickname on 4-Oct-2006 15:29:46 (7762 reads)
This autumn a wealth of PPC product announcements and prototypes have been brought forward in the quest for an AmigaOS 4.0 hardware target. One of the more interesting candidates for an effective market expansion might be the production-ready EFIKA, pairing low cost hardware (PPC SoC at 18 USD) with a typical light-weight OS for an enjoyable user experience.

PPCNUX wanted to find out what is behind this simple board and visited hardware veteran bplan at a German embedded electronics symposium to dig out more details.

What you, I or anyone else thinks about who was "right" or "wrong" and the outcome of the AmigaDE lawsuit is irrelevant to my point here. In order to determine whatever possibilities their might be for Amiga Inc. to trust Genesi with another license agreement, we need to look at things from Amiga Inc.'s perspektive, don't you agree?

And please don't insult your own intelligence by refering to Genesi as "right" or a "winner" by that default judgement. The only thing Genesi in practice "won" by the lawsuit was the ability to add the Pegasos to the list of AmigaDE licensed hardware without Amiga Inc's consent, for all other motions they were NOT granted any more rights than what was already in the conditions of the original license agreement. Amiga Inc. never contested any of the license conditions.

Up to this day, Genesi has still not bothered with enforcing anything and an Amiga Inc. official has made a public claim saying that the license agreement has been officially terminated. Quite a bold claim to make in public if it's not true, wouldn't you say?

I'd say that except for the lawyers, there were NO winners in that case.

Sorry for the OT, guys.

Never stopped them in the past, why would it be ifferent now? (those bold statements)
In the end what really counts was that Genesi didn't enforce it because it was not *worth* it... somhow the rest of the world is yet to be catch by storm with something Amiga Inc related...

Now, there are a few things about your theory that is confusing me somewhat... If Genesi "won" the lawsuit and got the court ruling they came for, why in god's name wouldn't they want to cash their prize? Unless the whole lawsuit thing was just a big publicity stunt, the only way to explain why Genesi wouldn't "bother" is if they didn't get what they wanted after all.

I state my case again; there were NO winners in that lawsuit.

Furthermore, it really doesn't make sense to say that a violated and not "bothered with" to defend intellectual property right would still be valid. It is Genesi's lack of action to enforce the license agreement that confirms that the license agreement is in fact no longer in affect. Put it down in writing somewhere, you seem to not be very good at remembering things Amiga Inc. says that are actually true.
