It would depend on the individual company but most commercial software is
licensed, not purchased and when you buy an upgrade, you are buying the new
bits, not a new copy.
Therefore, you are not legally able to resell your old copy.
Check the company though - some people have been really cool about this...

I have a question regarding out of production/no longer supported
software. What's the legal standing on copying this stuff?
no spiritual surrender...
