It couldn't be "taken over" by anyone else without cash changing hands. It's a corporate asset of VA Linux Systems, Inc. -- the Inc. is the important part there.

Publicly traded companies going belly up don't get to "give" their assets away, they sell them - at fair market value - or they face lawsuits from shareholders.
