In reply to Druck:

Perhaps I didn't make my original statement clear enough. I don't disagree with the sentiment that the 'new' Acorn Computers limited are trading on the good will attached to the previous Acorn Limited. I also don't disagree with the sentiment that we, as in the RISC OS community, should do everything we can to stop them. What I don't agree with is the involvment of lawyers. Lawyers are not cheap - and I suspect no one in the RISC OS community can afford the kind of protracted legal battle that would arise from pursuing action through the courts.

I also think the sentiment of my original comment stands - we should be showing what RISC OS can do now and promoting that where-ever and when-ever possible i.e. lets generate some possitive PR to counter-act the negative PR of the new Acorn Computers ltd. Lets show that RISC OS is alive and kicking. (of course its easy said than done but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try)
