ok, So I have been a member forever and I barely even come to the boards anymore. I am working tech support for gametap and I'm trying to provide the company with the information on who holds the liscence for gametap. Who currently owns the rights to the game. I know it was Sierra, but aren't they owned by vivendi? who else could hold the information etc... let me know guys, we may have a completely legal way to revive the game

AOL Purchased the rights from Sierra for the game. but it has been lost a long time, several people have approached AOL trying to buy rights AOL always admits to not knowing what they are talking about. So i guess the more money you have to spend on buying rights the better their memory will get.

Actually, AoL purchased the distribution TSN/INN rights from AT&T in 1996. From what I understand, AT&T still holds the rights to the franchise therefor any attempt to seek expansion or distribution of related materials would need an okay from AT&T for new material. For old material just ported from existing content would require approval from both AT&T and AOL/Time Warner. Not 100% sure though.

If someone is serious about doing something with it, I would suggest a copywrite lawyer.

Could be, I was merely working from AOL was the company that held the Copyright and Trademarks to Shadow of Yserbius when it lapsed. And when i mean lapsed i meant registration. registration is only proof of copyright and trademark and are not required to actually have copyright or trademark. Slo
