Re: Paramount and Borg Remastered: "[...]not interested."

I've said this in other threads, because a lot of people don't know how this stuff works, but sometimes "no" is because the company doesn't see a profit in even pursuing it. It takes lawyer time to review any old contracts related to the product, because they can't say "yes" without making sure there are no existing obligations or rights tied up elsewhere. Since the likelihood they could make money on something like this is slim to none, they may simply say no because saying "maybe" would cost them money to investigate it.
