(Re: Legality of fan sequels?) 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 would be very surprised to see them just shut it down – someone will buy it at some price – although, my guess is that the price is getting lower by the minute.
If it were to completely shut down, then I’m not sure what would happen. Perhaps someone out there is a lawyer and could tell us.
