Current Amiga News
Audio recording with Trevor Dickinson about Ben Hermans
.: Posted: AndreasM @ 10.08.2018 - 18:44
Recently, an audio clip of Trevor Dickinson has surfaced in which serious allegations are being made against Ben Hermans.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HN7C6q5cs7M

So at least the news reports on several websites.
The audio, however, is heavily cut so it's hard to really form an opinion about it. At least we do not even dare to do that.

In addition, the time of publication seemed a bit strange to us.

First of all, we took this opportunity to ask the participants.

Probably the most important question was whether there were any deals, so that A-EON would have received free licenses from Hyperion, as the audio file would like to convey.

Trevor Dickinson has told us the following:

A-EON Technology does have a worldwide sub-license granted by Hyperion Entertainment to use the AmigaOne name, AmigaOS name and Boing Ball on products it develops for AmigaOS4. However, A-EON Technology has to make significant payments to Hyperion Entertainment to port AmigaOS4 to the AmigaOne hardware it produces.
This includes payments for porting the kernel, writing any necessary drivers and/or other special utilities that may be required to make OS4 run on A-EON's AmigaOne hardware.
As Matthew Leaman wrote on AmigaWorld net, A-EON Technology also pre-pays (in batches) the significant cost of full software licence to Hyperion Entertainment for its AmigaOne machines (X1000, X5000 and the A1222 beta).
Every AmigaOne machine A-EON ships has an AmigaOS4 software license pre-paid to Hyperion Entertainment at the full license price, not the special reduced sales price which Hyperion charged customers for the AmigaOS4 Final Edition release. A-EON is prevented from disclosing the full license price by the terms of its Agreements with Hyperion Entertainment but suffice to say it is far greater that the special one-off AmigaOS4 Final Edition sales price.

Among other things, Hyperion has confirmed to us in writing that A-EON has always paid for the licenses of Hyperion. ("That is true, A-EON does pay for licenses which we negotiated.")
