The protection of trademark rights for Amiga and AmigaOS was expired in Germany early 2016. The appropriate entries at the German Patent and Trademark Office have never been renewed by Amiga Inc. or claimed by Hyperion Entertainment and Cloanto. The two company’s are still in a dispute for the US trademark. In the meantime a new contender has entered the battle for Amiga and started a new procedure in Germany to claim the Amiga brand. Another claim have been made for the entire eurozone. However, the entire Eurozone is still under Amiga Inc’s control until 2018 under registration number 000815779.
