Re: (TFT) Howard Thompson & TFT
Actually Mr. Howard owned all of the gaming assets under a diferent company
(Game Design Research, or some such). Metagaming "licensed" the rights to
publish and distribute. That way all the printing cost etc were under an
entity that owned very little to nothing. As long as Mr Howard did not
co-mingle assets, create fraudulant transactions or charged licensing fees
that were unreasonable (ala not being arms length by showing favoritism)
then the copyrights would be retained in the other company.
With that said. About 2 years ago a person claiming to be Mr Howards son
supposedly had purchased rights to restart publication. Had a website etc
but since then. Has disappeared. Must run in the family.

Wouldn't the bankruptcy filer tend to retain the rights unless they were
clearly valuable and desired by the creditors?
