Cloanto had been granted a lot of rights to support, including patching classic OS releases from the Amiga companies: (This is directly from one of the court documents.)

Quote:
21. The various rights granted to Cloanto IT srl, and later transferred or licensed to
CLOANTO, can be summarized as follows:
(a) The right to market and sell software that allows modern hardware and
operating systems to emulate AMIGA hardware (“Amiga Emulation”), and to
run AMIGA operating systems 0.7 through 3.1, as well as updates, patches
and enhancements by Cloanto IT srl and other various third party developers
(“Enhancements”)
, and applications and games created for AMIGA operating
systems by third parties and Cloanto IT srl, which has been a prominent
AMIGA developer since the 1980s.
(b) Since 1997, the right to develop, market, and sell Amiga operating systems
and Enhancements for use on AMIGA hardware.


22. CLOANTO or Cloanto IT srl has exercised the rights under various licenses granted
to Cloanto IT srl without interruption from the following dates, by doing all of the
following:
(a) Since 1987, incorporating the disk-based portions of AMIGA operating
systems as they were released (first, in Amiga OS 1.1, and then each operating
system thereafter up to and including Amiga OS 3.1) into applications created
for those systems by Cloanto IT srl, and advertising, marketing and selling
those applications;
(b) Since 1997, advertising, marketing, and selling Amiga Emulation products;
(c) Since 1997, advertising, marketing, and selling Amiga OS 1.1 through 3.0 for
use in Amiga Emulation and on AMIGA hardware;
(d) Since 1999, advertising, marketing, and selling Amiga OS 0.7 through 3.1 for
use in Amiga Emulation and on AMIGA hardware;
(e) Since 2000, advertising, marketing and selling Amiga OS 3.X (which is a
version of Amiga OS 3.1 with certain Enhancements) for use in Amiga
Emulation;
(f) Since 2006, advertising, marketing and selling Amiga OS 3.X for use on
AMIGA hardware (because the 3.X version in 2000 could not operate on
AMIGA hardware);

(g) Since 1997, using the AMIGA mark, the “Boing Ball Mark,” and the name
and designation, AMIGA FOREVER in connection with its Amiga-related
activities; and
(h) Since 2011, owning the trademark, AMIGA FOREVER in connection with its
Amiga-related activities.
So yes, Cloanto had fully granted rights to develop 3.x, something which Hyperion was expressly forbidden from doing.
