The statements "even Amiga Inc. cannot market or develop or distribute AmigaOS in any way, shape or form" and, specifically in reference to Cloanto, "There is no legal way to interfere with our exclusive source-code license of AmigaOS" would seem to indicate that Cloanto's new Kickstart is illegal.

Also it is stated that Hyperion is not legally allowed to open source AmigaOS :-(
This is weird, especially since Cloanto appears to have all the rights according to the US Copyright Office.

I think there are two things to distinct here; AmigaOS (the current form with Kickstart and Workbench combined) and the classic Kickstart and Workbench. As far as I can verify without any prove from Hyperion's side; Cloanto is the owner, perhaps Hyperion has a license (as stated, they have "... an exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, royalty free license to AmigaOS and its source-code ...".

But I guess it's time to contact them.
