Wow this is great news... it feels like this has been going on for ever and now it's finally over. I too wonder if there's any significance in Hyperion's change in business entity type. Looking forward to future developments especially the 'most ambitious project'.

Yeah, I noticed that too. According to Answers.com it's a limited liability cooperative. Who is involved, I don't know.

Looks like something has changed. Hyperion Entertainment VOF is now called Hyperion Entertainment CVBA. Is there a change in ownership or new members?

According to this description:

VOF = Partnership (with unlimited liability)
CVBA = Cooperative with limited liability

So I guess they have just changed the business model. Perhaps they were concerned at their personal financial exposure over the whole legal mess, and just decided to change the company structure to limit their personal liability.

I'm glad I decided not to sell my Amiga One.

Future looks a lot better for AmigaOS

Are any additional details available on the terms of the settlement?

It sounds like Amiga has simply walked away.

@ne_one

Often settlement terms call for limited information to be publicly released. It would not be surprising if we never heard anything more about it from either party.

The CVBA is a company which needs to be incorporated by at least three shareholders. Previously Evert Carton and Timothy de Groote were partners in Hyperion Entertainment so there must be at least one new partner.

It could mean they have got an investor, or perhaps part of settlement is that Amiga Inc (or whatever following company) got a share of Hyperion Entertainment or maybe just that ownership is extended to OS4 developers. The last one sounds unlikely for many reasons.

The change of legal form happened in April already when they also changed the company name.

Congratulations to all involved or interested parties. This truly is a landmark in the history of The modern Amiga Operating System.

No word from A.Inc yet though.
