It offers a money back guarantee if they can't get the IP. $50k goal seems a little low, but what do I know about bankruptcy and auctions.

Says that the THQ auction is in multiple rounds, and one of the next ones will sell off additional assets such as homeworld.

Anyone ever heard of this Rob Santos?

Edit:
Hmm, looking over it closer, they won't even give out the homeworld 3 game to contributers unless they get $750k, which seems kinda high. They plan to release original series for free though if they hit $100k.
Not exactly encouraging me to donate here.
They'd have been better off if they SOLD the original series for a very low amount, and gave free copies to donors on this campaign.

Do they not know that Relic already released the source code to Homeworld? What is missing is a clear license for the said source code. Would also be cool if THQ just released the whole thing as freeware.

A source code release doesn't include the game assets and even though it's been out for 9 years now no one has done anything at all with the code short of a halfway Linux SDL port. And at this point I don't think THQ is in a position to give away anything their creditors think they can sell for even a few bucks.
