Classic Game Developer Forced to Pull Game Source Code Auctions

Carl Williams writes, “It is a sad day when we see things like this. Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry while at Sierra On-Line, put a few files up for auction on eBay recently. As expected, fans of Leisure Suit Larry 1 and 2 quickly made this become a big thing in the retro gaming community. By becoming a big deal though, the auctions caught the eye of current owner of many Sierra On-Line intellectual properties, such as Police Quest and Kings Quest to name a few. This is important because that company is Activision and they have taken legal action against Mr. Lowe in reference to those two auctions. End result, those auctions are now pulled.”
