In their lawsuit against Hyperion Entertainment, the four companies Amiga Inc., Itec, Amino and Cloanto applied for an interim injunction. In legal terms, this means a court order to compel a person to do or not do something while waiting for the final judgment. According to this document, Hyperion is prohibited from selling AmigaOS 3.1.4. Cloanto’s involvement is based on its copyright in AmigaOS 3.1. This request also confirms that the temporary cessation of sales of AmigaOS 3.1.4 was based on a cessation and forbearance letter. For Cloanto, one of the objectives of the conciliation agreement was to protect various rights acquired in 1994. In addition to using the Amiga Forever emulator since 1997, Cloanto was able to use AmigaOS 1.1 to 3.0 on real Amiga since 1998, and AmigaOS 3.1 since 1999. During the years 2011 to 2016, Cloanto has acquired AmigaOS 3.1 among others. The copyright for this version of the operating system was registered on April 27, 2007. By breaking this deal and selling AmigaOS 3.1.4, Cloanto suffered financial losses, but also a loss of reputation, and customers. In addition, on November 30, one of the largest operators in the market informed Cloanto that because of Hyperion’s ownership statement on AmigaOS 3.1.4, Cloanto’s AmigaOS 3.1 products were no longer commercially available. In several countries, sales of Cloanto have collapsed.
