This was filed as an 8-K back in July. Probably should've tipped you off towards, the 10-Q contains nothing new.

Yeah, Interplay lost BG ages ago.

Also, this means Interplay probably lost Dark Alliance as well, but that is unclear.

But honestly, the filing is pretty unclear and I'm not sure who owned what anyway. Interplay probably owned the characters, plot and other related paraphernalia of IWD and Torment, and Atari owns that now. No idea how that relates to property of Baldur's Gate, because BioWare might be holding that rather than Interplay.
