Martin Stamer,
a German wholesale chess bookseller and publisher, owner of EuroChess Zentrale [1] Königswinter.

Legal Issues

Due to advertisement issues and disputed statements in EuroChess' Chess Computer Catalog 1996 [3], problems with monetary consequences for the programmers under contract arose. Mutual preliminary injunction initiated by Stamer's business rival Ossi Weiner and continuous court cases over years [4] was the consequence. In February 1997 Marty Hirsch made a public accusation against his former distributor in a newsgroup [5] [6], while he was already about to collaborate with Weiner. The German Magazine Computerschach und Spiele broached that issue [7], where Stamer made a counter statement.
