View Full Version : Tracking down a copyright

I’ve been toying with a story idea that’s based largely on a very old text-based computer game. I’ve tracked down the company that holds the copyrights to the original game. Any suggestions on how to approach this company about my film idea?

You ask them if it's alreasy been optioned. They might then show their hand as to whether they will option it with no money down.

Wow. Should't it be harder than that? :-)

Well, it's only easy if they tell you to name a price and you name one that is acceptable to them.
