The famous processor creator MIPS Inc. is for sale.
Here is the source:

I hope it will find a good buyer that will ensure future MIPS processors.

these days the most successful MIPS-architecture cores seem to be other companies' designs.

There is always the Zombie Patent Troll business plan, you can't kill that which is already dead...

Ah! So SCO/whatever it is they're calling themselves now could buy it and it would fit right in with their business model.

Don't discount the idea of somebody doing the exact same thing they (or someone else) did before that resulted in failure. It's a surprisingly popular methodology.
