|Picasso96: Cloanto replies Jens Schönfeld's allegations|
For years (German), first Thomas Richter - who is now working on Jens Schönfeld's commercial P96 distribution - and later Jens Schönfeld himself have criticized Cloanto's distribution of Picasso96 as part of Amiga Forever. In a 2001 press release, Cloanto had announced that the company licenced P96 from its original authors Alexander Kneer and Tobias Abt for use in the Amiga Forever distribution.
Jens Schönfeld denies that, recently he attacked the Italian company in a press release and claimed (German) in a discussion on amiga-news.de that he had only seen "blackened account statements and vague e-mails" as evidence for the alleged licence to Cloanto.
Apparently, Cloanto now released these exact emails and a transfer receipt to the public. The old Picasso announcement on the company's website has been supplemented with a small note and a PDF document.
The PDF contains two e-mails which are apparently part of a longer conversation between Mike Battilana (Cloanto) and Alexander Kneer (Picasso96). Basically, Battilana is having Kneer confirm various details of the license agreement. The core points the two are addressing, seem to be the following items:
Approached by amiga-news.de, Jens Schönfeld did not question the authenticity of the mails published by Cloanto, but states that these mails have been "taken out ouf context" to make people "draw wrong conclusions". He didn't want to elaborate any further, stating that both parties' lawyers were currently working on this issue. (cg)
