Amiga Future looking for copyright holders
Press release As you all know, we release full versions of commercial and shareware titles on the Amiga Future homepage and the cover CD.

The type of software doesn't matter, i.e. games, applications, drivers or CDs. We want to preserve all commercial titles. To do this in a legal way, we need the permission of the individual copyright holders.

The biggest problem is to find the copyright holders. That's why we ask you for help. Are you in contact with copyright holders of shareware or commercial software? Do you know some in person or did you have contact with someone a short time ago? Then please drop us an email at

Also we are looking for someone who can help us establishing contacts to some italian, french and american companies. This means ideally someone who has an origin there and could phone those companies. (snx)
