I do appreciate your input. It does matter, just like a few other opinions written here. Like you, I was..."afraid" of Disney (if that is incorrect for myself saying so about you, I do apologize).I'm not particularly happy about it but realistically I don't think there's anyway to change that short of Disney asking the devs to continue under their wing.
I don't think Disney would ever willingly let us use the copyright for potco without very heavy supervision from them which could be a blessing or a curse .
If we truly wanted to take control of our own destiny the Devs could take the time and what they have learned to create a new and unique game similar to potco but completely different so that the rights are completely in their hands (like yooka laylee did)
The time TLOPO has been granted to thrive that fear I once had was diminished. Today, through research, I am understanding that POTCO -and- TLOPO have a circumstance(s) unique to each which no other public remake can boast. We are venturing into unprecedented ground here! As such, I believe if an alliance can be struck with what this thread proposes...we all may come to the understanding that Disney is not really the one's we are obligated to answer to. In retrospect, because of this unprecedented ground coupled with OUR unique circumstance(s), the success or failure of TLOPO is obligated to history...of how a change to copyright law was sought, given the matter of "unfairness" surrounding the premise of abandonware law.
This...what TLOPO has been capable of achieving thus far...it is much bigger than any of us have ever looked at before! Hence, in that being so, REVIVE POTCO can serve again a purpose to help the community. But why REVIVE? Simply because some of REVIVE's own organizers have yet to become tainted by the temptation to break copyright law...putting us into a position to become better heard without the conflict of being biased (in a way that 'playing' an abandoned game under the yoke of copyright brings). That unbiaseness, and Disney being reminded, offers a level of protection and defense alone (among others I do personally have).
