Like mr_0 said above i too don't really know the ins and outs of this but it seems a shame to waste it as it's very nice indeed. If it was further developed maybe a possible netplay version could be done
But back to the original point if the worst comes to the worst i would just distribute it and say it's out your hands now
there is nothing more difficult to stop than the open market especially for a small disgruntled company.
Also doesn't Archie Maclean have some say in this?
