Any improper or illegal transfers of IP along the chain of transfers means the ones later in the chain are invalid. The current Amiga Inc. would have been the 5th company (by my count) after C= for any rights to have been transferred and the IP appears to have been divided several times.



From what is stated, I would say no but I am not a lawyer.


Cloanto appears to have the rights for workbench and kickstart for all code up to somewhere in 1993. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AmigaOS (see the sources about this).
