Event: Update on Amiga 30 Reykjavik
This friday the Amiga 30 anniversary will be celebrated in Iceland (amiga-news.de reported). As Michael Battilana of Cloanto (owner of the Commodore/Amiga copyrights and publisher of Amiga Forever) told us now, he will attend the show as well.

Furthermore he pointed out that they "will be a couple of dozen people, which is not much in absolute terms, so even having a website is a lot. On the other hand, it looks like almost 0.01 % of the population of the entire country will attend, which in this light makes it by far the most successful Amiga anniversary event of the year, or actually, one of the largest computing events in the world. There will be Amiga demosceners, developers, users, and people in general whose life has been affected by Amiga." In case you decide spontaneously to join as well, you might want to combine the event with the Reykjavík Culture Night (Menningarnótt) that takes place on Saturday. (snx)

Web-Browser: Netsurf 3.3 alpha with Reaction interface
Chris Young has ported his AmigaOS 4-port of the web browser Netsurf to AmigaOS 3. In contrary to the ports made available for the Amiga by Artur 'Arti' Jarosik - which unfortunately are distributed with the same name - Young's version uses a native Amiga-toolkit,

Due to the use of Reaction, at least AmigaOS 3.5 is required. According to the author this latest version is an alpha version.

Cracker scene: Unreleased Amiga port of "Mutant League Hockey" (AGA)
In 1994 Electronic Arts released the sport simulation Mutant League Hockey on the Megadrive. An Amiga port ordered by Ocean was never released although the port was almost finished.


20 years later the cracker group Scoopex obviously has found the original game and released it as "crack". We do not know any legal source of download. (cg) (Translation: dr)

New "Commodore" trademark for Smartphones opposed (Update 2)
A few months ago, Massimo Canigiani from Italy started presenting himself as the alleged new owner of the Commodor trademark. His newly established British based "Commodore Business Machines Ltd." was going to sell Commodore Smartphones to retro enthusiasts.

But Canigiani didn't actually acquire the existing trademark, he simply tried to have a new one registered - his application is available publicly in the European trademark database. As of today, the status of his application has changed - it is now listed as "Application opposed".

The opposing party is the dutch C= Holdings, the current owner of the original Commodore trademark.

Update: (13.08.2015, 0:20, cg)

Now C= Holdings is also addressing this matter in a press release: The company announces the intention to defend its rights "vigorously".

Update 2: (16.08.2015, 17:00, cg)

Yesterday, Cloanto - owner of the copyright of most software released by Commodore and Amiga - issued a press release aswell, stating that Canigiani is not in a position to include software emulations of old Commodore computers with his smartphone since he does not have a license for the required firmware.
