Cloanto confirms transfers of Commodore/Amiga copyrights

In the last few months, Cloanto started distributing Amiga System Software – the publisher traditionally refers to it as “Workbench” instead of “AmigaOS” – on CF cards, Floppy Disks and as a downloadable Workbench Disk Image Pack. Approached by Amiga-News, Cloanto’s Michael Battilana confirmed that the company owns the copyrights for all works created by the Commodore/Amiga companies up to 1993.

That seems like Cloanto now owns everything – but nothing could be farther from the truth, as the article details. Pieces of Amiga-related intellectual property are currently owned by three different companies, and there are also a few things with an unclear status.

Cynically, you could rephrase the headline as ‘Amiga IP ownership situation gets little less messy’.
