It would have to be handled like illegal ROMs now and that gains us nothing, just a bunch of sites getting DMCA notices and maybe fines or lawsuits.
You're going to have an even worse time finding coders who will work under those circumstances.
So out of the available options, what's left?
Should we ask about open sourcing it? Absolutely, but don't expect an answer.
Kickstarter to buy the IP? It should have been BSD licensed years ago. That would benefit all parties.
