The Amiga trademarks are not to be taken very lightly and also affects look-a-like words. Intellivision Entertainment Is working on a unique video game system redefining entertainment with family and friends. The Amico, comes with six premium, pre-loaded games, with additional games ranging from $2.99 – $9.99. However, using an Italian word meaning ‘friend’ for a new game console is a bridge to far for Amiga Corporation, a subsidiary of Cloanto. The legal opposition is actually made by Cloanto because of the ongoing legal battle with Belgian based Hyperion Entertainment. On May 8, 2019, Cloanto started a new lawsuit against Hyperion Entertainment CVBA. Cloanto sues Hyperion for trademark infringement and unfair competition under the Lanham Act. Cloanto are currently seeking a default judgment against Hyperion Entertainment. Cloanto is upset about the development of AmigaOS 3.1.4 and upcoming AmigaOS 3.2 for 68k based Amiga computers by Hyperion. The Belgian based company is probably increasing 68k development because of disappointing sales of PowerPC based AmigaOne computers and AmigaOS 4.X, and the increasing interest for 68K based Amiga compatibles such as the very successful Vampire V4 series.
