||MUI für AmigaOS with licensing issues (Update)|
In December 2014 it was revealed that the MUI distribution "MUI for AmigaOS" contained API documentation that had been copied from the MorphOS SDK without acquiring a proper license first. During the following discussion, both developers of "MUI for AmigaOS" - Jens "damato" Maus und Thore "tboeckel" Böckelmann - apologized for their mistake.
When the latest update of the distribution was discussed on amiga-news.de today, Christian 'Tokai' Rosentreter issued another statement (German) claiming that the developer documentation inside the archive still contained large parts copied verbatim from the MorphOS SDK. After a short conversation with Rosentreter and an indepth look at two of the files listed by him, we found evidence (German) that suggests his allegations are true.
After discussing our findings with Maus and Böckelmann, amiga-news.de decided to stop covering any future versions of "MUI for AmigaOS" until the documentation in question has been rewritten from scratch.
