Scorp: This was a pretty unusual situation. Essentially what happened was "old" Wrox's owners went bankrupt (receivership) in 2003. The old employees showed up one day and their jobs were gone.
A receiver/liquidator took over to sell off their assets. We bought the name, the best-selling books at the time, the web sites, etc.
What we didn't anticipate was that after that, the receiver/liquidator would sell the rights and inventory to the remaining older books and books that didn't sell as well to another publisher.
We initially attempted to distribute the code to all the old books, thinking it was in everyone's best interest, and were quickly told to stop by the other publisher. Unfortunately for us and for "Wrox" customers, whether you'd already bought the book or found it a week or 7 years later in a bargain bin, it still said "come to Wrox and get the code."
