I was wondering about that too. However, the Dreamcast is mostly off the shelf components. Hitachi SH-4 CPU, Power VR GPU, Windows CE as OS...
Was it Intellivision that released an add on to play Atari 2600 games and got sued by Atari.. it turned out though, you could build an Atari 2600 clone using standard off the shelf components.. Regarding the name.. well.. not sure.. but something like DC2 is likely not copyrighted by Sega..
