For any submission, be it documentation, software, ROM-code, whatever it is
best to fill out a DS-form. I have designed it in such a way that even if
you are not able to untimately reach a person who legally holds an item, it
shows a trail of efforts made to acquire the proper permissions. In many
cases we will not be able to track down original publishers but if one
should appear out of obscurity with a lawsuit in hand I can show that we
did everything we could reasonably do to obtain permission.
