Legal Question in Intellectual Property in Minnesota

At the company I work for, we developed a software package to manage resource assignments. This software has no relation to our core business. It is currently in use, but will soon be abandoned for a suite package which includes this functionality. When this software is abandoned, would it be legal to package this software for commercial sales?

The company will continue to own the copyright, and the copyright will not be lost simply because the software is no longer used. While the company may sell the software or license it for another to sell, you cannot sell it on your own without the company's permission/license.
