I figured if Valve wanted to- they'd buy the rights to dbz -.-Ravendust said:They wouldn't be able to. Steam can only 'buy out' mods that are legal to sell. ESF can't be bought by any company that doesn't own the rights to DBZ (Toei, FUNimation, Atari...).
If they tried, FUNi would go after Valve, not the ESF team. Not that Steam would be able to buy the rights to ESF without the teams consent anyway.
