Like I said, trademark != IP (Intellectual Property, which is probably the term you're after). As far as we know, Interplay still owns FS's IP.
So does that mean, if they wanted to make a title in the FreeSpace universe, they could ignore Interplay and go directly to the authors and creaters of FreeSpace, it's assets and backstory (-> mental property.... or however "Geistiges Eigentum" is translated into english)?

Indeed. However it is possible those guys secured the trademark as a potential negotiation argument in order to acquire the IP from Interplay.LOTS OF SPECULATION FOR EVERYONE
...or alternately that is the date that the trademark may run out and Stompy Bot lets Interplay know that they are interested in purchasing the franchise, starting with the name trademark.
Maybe they just think it's a cool sounding name.
So there's a (slight) chance this small company will just make Freespace 3 and destroy the entire franchise with it.Hopefully, there will be still a window frame of, let's say, 4 to 5 years until Freemaggedon happens.I'll bring the popcorn.
Where did I assume anything? Why did you assume I assumed?Assumeception.
BTW...................When did Batutta become someone else?
The description mentions Space Combat Sim, but that is only the current status. If they make it the successor of Windows FreeCell, it will from then on be a card game I imagine. Not sure how that legally works. It's just a name yep.
So all they've done then is made it harder for anyone else to eventually make FS3?Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing
