Ok, im a bit confused. Where is a reliable source for finding out who owns the rights to names\franchises?
I went here:http://www.copyright.gov/records/
And according to that, FASA corporation made various copyrights from 92 to 95... but they are gone, and there are NO other Shadowrun related copyrights. How does this kind of thing work? Im assuming either something isnt up to date or this isnt what im looking for. I was just curious as to who owned the rights as of right now. As I said before WizKids owns the rights to the "Shadowrun Duels" game, but I dont even see them on there.
Help me out here...
EDIT: Ok, I had to look at trademarks. I found it... there are various Shadowrun logos and such here, but... this is interesting:
Its true, Microsoft now owns the rights to Shadowrun electronic games.
I wonder what they would charge if someone wanted to purchase the rights from them
Also, if you click the "check status" button, it shows the history of activity for the trademark. In 2001 they renewed it for 6 years... I wonder if they are actually working on a game...?
Woa! I looked more into the info on there, Microsoft is based in Redmond, Washington. Thats one of the areas IN SHADOWRUN. Thats really wierd. They are probably going to put themselves into the game if they make one. Replacing Mitsuhama with Microsoft or something like that
