  1. It may already be too late, and you may not even know, but do you know if any of these titles are still available to grab and if so, who would we contact to bid? Since this was over a year ago, I'm not holding out much hope, but it still sounds like bankruptcy proceedings are still ongoing, so I thought maybe it was worth a shot to ask.

    I know the actual licenses aren't up for bid, but it still might be cool to have some of the other stuff as collectors items if no one else has grabbed them.
