Amiga & AROS Always wanted to own the IP and trademarks of one of the most innovative computer brands in history? A brand carried by a computer which was easily ten years ahead of its time, capable of multitasking (in colour) with multiple resolutions displayed at the same time, while Windows were still windows and the Mac couldn't hold more than 8 pages in its word processor on its single-tasking monochrome operating system? Yes, Bill McEwen's Amiga, Inc. is selling the Amiga trademark and all associated IP. It's not like the guy was doing anything with it anyway.

Some people never give up. His company is dead since more than 10 years now but he still tries to make money out of it. I bet he went through all the money over the years and don't want to get back to the rank of employees.

Hope this guy gonna commit suicide at the end or become homeless. Seen this type before.
He just fucks up a good brand but I doubt anyone would care much about that either and how funny would it be if some chinese company would buy their trademark and start selling condoms over it ;)
