Does the company that made Starlancer still exists?
It's an old game and I recall something happening to people who made Freelancer (which is a sequel to Starlancer).
Most of them are most likely retired anyway.
EDIT: Found it, Digital Anvil is now defunct and Chris Roberts is making movies.
Microsoft, of course, is still around, but do you think they'll care about an old game which turned out to be a bomb anyway?
