Have a read for yourself!

My point is there as well, so please read before posting;

For maximum public clarity, deposits of works by Cloanto and assignments of Commodore-Amiga copyrights to Cloanto up to Amiga ROM and OS version 3.x were also deposited at the US Copyright Office in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2016 and 2017. This was in addition to the existing licenses, which remain in effect (even without an additional, explicit copyright assignment).

In addition to the original ROM and operating system files, open source projects such as AROS provide some compatibility with the original system. AROS is both free and easy to license, and includes a 68K build (a project sponsored by Cloanto) with binary compatibility option.
As you can verify at the US Copyright Office, kickstart and workbench are in Cloanto's hands.

Besides, Cloanto sponsors AROS 68k. Hyperion and A-Eon just appear to buy intellectual property and squeeze the lemon as far as I can verify.
