Why doesn't this trope cover fanmade remakes of movies (i.e. Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation, Our Robocop Remake, Our Footloose Remake, etc)?

I dunno. Might be something for this thread.

Does this cover remade engines, which usse the original games' assets but is a ground-up remake of the app itself?

Does the remake have to be finished to be added? If not, is there a reason openmw isn't on here?

I didn't change the page because I'm not 100% sure of this, but I don't think you can lose a copyright for not defending it. I know this is true of _trademarks_, but not of copyright.

No, you can't lose a copyright simply because you aren't defending it. You are allowed to enforce copyrights selectively. Otherwise, would be flat-out illegal.

Copyrights don't go away until they run out.

I corrected the area. Derivative works have their own copyrights for the derived material; I figured that would be a major factor. (It would hurt to want to do a Wii port of your work and find you can't do it right because a fan already wrote the best motion-control code....)

Nobody seems to have objected, so I went ahead and altered the article to be a bit less vitriolic.
