||Amino taking legal measures against AmigaOS 3.1.4|
Yesterday, Hyperion's AmigaOS 3.1.4 stopped being available for purchase, the relevant links on Hyperions Website didn't go anywhere. Today, the company announced on Facebook that "normal online purchase services" had resumed and wished its customers "Happy 3.1.4 buying again!".
If you look closer, you'll realize that Hyperion is using a different service provider for its online sales now: until yesterday, Avangate was handling the commercial downloads for the Belgian company. Now all "buy now" links are pointing to shareit.com. The first party to point out that 3.1.4 sales had been stopped due to a cease and desist from Amiga Washington (Amino) was author of the Amiga Documents report in a Twitter posting yesterday.
We were now able to have this confirmed by several sources: behind the scenes, Hyperion management is confirming that the company - or rather, its service provider Avangate - recieved a cease and desist from Amino. As of now, it is unknown to us what this C&D is based on. But Hyperion simply switching to a different service provider and continuing to sell the product worldwide is a clear statement that the two parties disagree about the legal situation.
