So... who has Maemo rights?

Its a bit tricky thing really to define; by "rights" do you mean which rights exactly?
The rights to the Maemo trademark, or the SW copyright, or the HW design and model copyright...
  • 1.) We own the Maemo trademark ourselves, as Maemo Community e.V.
  • 2.) Noka Technologies owns the copyright to the parts of SW written originally from scratch in Nokia. Other parts of the SW, both FOSS and commercial are owned by respective holders of various bunch of licenses.
  • 3.) Design and utility copyrights of the various Maemo/Meego HW devices are owned by Nokia Technologies. Parts of the HW design are owned by the respective copyright holders of the original design (for example if I remember correctly the N900 original HW design is based on BeagleBoard design)

Meego and Maemo COULD be resurrected with a realistic amount of effort. The resurrection of an extinct species of animal could not...
For what it's worth, there are serious efforts undergoing to resurrect woolly mammoths (well, an elephant-mammoth hybrid), and I'm sure there's at least one mad scientist hard at work to do the same for sabre-tooth tigers.

I doubt you would. The price would be outrageously prohibitive.

That's probably okay since smilodons would be prohibitively rageous out there anyway.

Exactly. This is utopia. I get it. Maemo and MeeGo were awesome mobile OSes at a time but it time to move forward and use our energy on SailfishOS - the true MeeGo successor imho.

Here's no chance Nokia would focus on MeeGo again. They don't even produce phones anymore - they just license the brand.

Personally I think MeeGo has a way bigger chance for success in the hands of Jolla (as SailfishOS). Nokia could easily have killed it after a few years like Backberry and Blackberry 10 if they haven't sold out to Microsoft. Furthermore Jolla cares a lot more about openness, community, privacy and security that Nokia would ever do.
