I wonder if those are authorized copies.  I suspect they aren't.

Aonix no longer exists, but apparently its assets are now owned by PTC,
which still sells (a much newer version of) ObjectAda.

The copy on is of a CD whose label says "This edition of
ObjectAda is not licensed for development of commercial software.  This
CD may not be re-sold."  It does have an "All rights reserved" copyright

(I worked for Aonix many years ago, but I have no current connection
with them or their successors.)
