Reply To: Legality of fan sequels?


(Re: Legality of fan sequels?) Ken,
I hope this doesn’t come out as a stupid question, but I’m curious about something in regard to your message about Vivendi losing money, etc. It got me to thinking: What would happen (if anything) to the intellectual property, ownership, etc of Sierra’s products if Vivendi either completely shut down their games business, or if they (Vivendi) went completely bankrupt and shut the doors to the entire corporation. I think I may already know the answer to my first question: Vivendi would retain ownership if the company chose to shut down what remains of Sierra, correct? Even though I know it’s highly unlikely that Vivendi would just cease to exist, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the “what if?” of such an occurence.
