Why is there Orion published by Trek Industries and then Orion Prelude published by Trek Industries, Inc?

Why would Valve allow this...
Orion Prelude is years older and hasn't been patched since February. It wasn't uploaded or updated in some attempt to bypass Orion's unavailability while the DMCA notice was being processed.

Valve doesn't give a shit as long as they get their cut. really



Valve is not Gamings savior. Gabe is not some awesome Gaben out to save the world.

Valve does or allows a lot of shady and scummy shit and because the net worships them they get away with it.
Guys, Orion is a much much older game than Prelude, and it isn't being target of any DMCA claims whatsoever. The difference in publisher name is irrelevant and nothing more than an inconsistency when filling it. Even major publisher do those mistakes.

Before resorting to shiposting a bit of research would certainly be nice.
