Steve Jackson has always used this excuse for not allowing any fan-based
GURPS software or web-postings. 

Since he seems to have relaxed on this issue I can only assume that it's
not strictly true - maybe it's up to the discretion of the copyright
holder, but still does not endanger them from losing their copyright.

Or maybe it's simply that while it is technically true, the non-copyright
holder would have to prove in court that the current copyright holder did
not 'want' the copyright that badly if they didn't defend it. Something
legally possible, but which probably wouldn't pass a jury's 'squint' test.

Is there a lawyer in the house?
