Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done if the actual commercial rightsholders are not willing to entertain a path towards this outcome, or even consider the possible benefits. After all, I cannot "prove" a given set of outcomes of relicensing, especially for these companies, which I know nothing about. I can only say, look around at the world in which we live, and observe the results of open source, specifically in terms of community.

I am told by Jens that it is not about the money, and maybe it isn't. Perhaps that is true of the controllers of the other involved entities too, if we are to be generous in our consideration. If controlling the fate of AmigaOS was their dream-of-dreams, then rational discussion is impossible, and perhaps there isn't "a price", despite any benefits one could conceivably convey.
