Yeah, I lack an ending text like "any left over or refunded funds (if we win) will be used for GotP".
I'm pretty sure that would incite more people to help funding.

But then, if they'd run a "fund me" campaign for GotP, while the courtcase is running, people would complain about now knowing if the funds would be diverted for the legal battle, or possibly if they loose be seized by Stardock...

I find therefore asking for this to be the correct way.

That was my read of it as well. Frankly, I'd love to see more talk about the plans for GOTP, but kinda silly to do that when the lawsuit might end with massive legal and/or financial hurdles. So I guess this is the best they can do.

Maybe, but since there's no realistic chance that the donations will exceed their expenses, it's kind of a moot point, isn't it?

Well, if they win the case (and honestly, that may be a very big IF), aren't they entitled to be repaid the costs?

They the spent money could go to GotP.

in general, not in the USA, but some states have laws that if a suit is groundless then the one who started it pays for both.
