TOS merch sells better. It would probably all be nuTOS if not for the strangely split movie/TV series rights between CBS and Paramount.
Nah, that's clear cut. CBS has the merchandising rights for everything Trek (note both Star Trek XI and Star Trek XI in the listings).

It's up to the companies wanting to make & sell Trek merchandise to decide which incarnation of it they want to go with. If they have big enough wallets, they can do all of them.
So its companies like Diamond Select who think that TOS is a better bet. Not CBS.
Basically. CBS just wants to get paid their cut, so they don't care which version of Trek a licensee wants to pursue.
