ITP some 13 years old code with unknown license

Hi folks,

I would like ITP Blockade. Its an old XWindow game.
Currently the sources can be grabbed here:

	http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Zone/5267/

A first package has been uploaded to mentors.debian.net
(I'm in the NM process.)

My problem is: There is no explicite license, except for
some included fonts. The author ("der Mouse") just mumbles
something about having contacted the author of the original
Atari game, and he said its OK. Of course I tried to contact
der Mouse, but without luck. And since "Mouse" is widely used
in computing, Google didn't return something usefull.

This game is on the net for 13 years (1991). It has already
been released with RedHat 6.2 and 7.1, but then they dropped
it again, as it seems.

Maybe somebody of Legal can take a look? Can this package go
to main, non-free, or contrib?


Regards

Harri
