Commodore has already made million(s) from licensing and promoting their name.

A recognisable brand for 30-somethings (i.e. the people with money) can be worth a lot of money.

Whatever the next owner wants it to stand for, if they were smart it would be a branding on some computer related gadget.

The name, logo, brand is iconic within today's 30-something westerners. People who own like 50% of the world's wealth.

Slap the name Amiga and the logo on some anonymous chinese netbook and see what a leg up it would give them!!

The longer it goes unused, the less it will be worth. It probably has 10 years of value left before it is completely worthless.
