The folks who OWN the rights to SVR4 is SCO -- and soon will be
Caldera. Perhaps they might be able to do something nice like SCO did
to the early pre SysV stuff.

I think, because the stuff only runs on Amiga you'd need whoever has the
Commodore rights to AMIX as well as SCO/Caldera to allow it to be copied
or put on the web.
