Thanks for the update jxeboy.

I believe U.S. copyrights last for 47 years so we only have 27 years to go. :)

Okay, whew.

Just spend several minutes with tech specialist at US Copyright Office and find that indeed Activision Publishing now owns rights to Grand Prix Legends software, manuals, and artwork as of Sierra Online selling it to them in 2013.

The USPTO cancellation only applies to the name, not the copyrighted materials.

Dammit.

(copyright now lasts 98-years btw, so 2096 for GPL)



:D
