    That would be Wizzards of the Coast I believe, as they purchased Last Unicorn Games and as far as I know, they have not sold the LUG properties (i.e., copyrights, patents and/or trademarks issued to and aquired by LUG).

    From some post way back in the day it sounded like Wizzards only purchased LUG to kill the ICON system and get it off the market. Damn shame too, ICON was wonderful. Easy to use and so adaptable to any setting.

    On the other hand, they don't have the Trek license any more, nor is the material in print. IANAL, but I'm not sure how posting this material is supposed to reasonably deprive them of potential sales.

    I have a hard time seeing that coming up in a meeting. "R&D says ICON is too good. We must kill it for d20 to thrive!" Why didn't they scoop up everyone else with a half-decent house system, then? I don't recall anything about them trying to buy SJG or the like at the time...

    Steve Jackson Games simply cost too much and had a strong future, Last Unicorn Games was still young and small.

    I'd accept that they would rather try and acquire LUG's ability to produce full-colour quality hardcovers on a relatively meager budget.

    It's always been inferred that WOTC bought out the LUG primarily with an eye at getting the Star Trek franchise. What they didn't bet on was that Paramount/CBS would reclaim the rights and offer them to Decipher. The PG rights have reverted back to Paramount again so it will be interesting to see what happens next. As for the OP's posting material I believe that as long as the material isn't being released for profit then there should be no problem.

    Sadly it's simpler than that. WotC indeed wanted the licenses that LUG had managed, but Lucas refused to allow a Trek game to be made by the same company, and the Tolkien estate flat out refused to be part of the D&D verse... so, that was that.

    That said, this thread was posted only BECAUSE the information is out of print and has zero chance of being re-released in the future.
