I would like to know what the current ownership situation around BESM is. Here's the story as I know it from my research:
In 2006, when Guardians of Order went out of business, ArtHaus, a subsidiary of White Wolf, purchased it and released BESM 3rd Edition. Then, in 2012, when White Wolf decided to leave the pen and paper market, Onyx Path bought Scion and the Trinity lines and became a licencee of the World of Darkness (table top) and Exalted lines and gained ownership of Scion and Trinity outright. A separate group, Night Studios, is licensing the MET rules for WoD. But, I have not heard anyone mention BESM, and I can't find any up to date info searching the web.
While issues of IP ownership aren't always publicly known, and may not even be clear cut, has anyone clarified if White Wolf still owns BESM, and if so, if there has been any movement for someone to try to license it like with the other properties?
