This what's making me angry why should somebody own opie or gpe other than 
the respective developers who worked on it . 

As said the trademark is only valid for the united states , so handhelds.org 
has no right to claim anything in Europe. 

I understood completly what you are saying florian and maybe it is an idea to 
make an official statement about it . 

I also read on handhelds.org that he is quoting you. 

So I will not get in touch with handhelds.org. Ruben is owning opie.nl
and probarly gpe.nl as well.
