Kinda off topic of steam/gog/etc but EVERYONE wants both s*ardock and F&P to continue making games, right? (Saw that on reddit somewhere. its already been said is my guess)

Likely Stardock counternotified and indemnified Valve/Steam from any damages...
Or Steam had a look at it, and decided the game is not infringing, and that the sales are worth the risk that Origins might be found infringing by a jury.

I just saw a tweet from Brad that SCO is back on Steam. Was there some update we didn’t hear about?

By 'great' do you mean 'not great at all' or am I missing an implication?
Yeah sorry that didn't read well. But indeed it would be a "great" outcome for them since they did actually steal their ideas and content for Origins. What I was implying was "they would be lucky to even get this...".

Sarcasm is badly transferred via the electronic lines of the InterWebs.

That email will hurt Stardock even more.
Even if the court finds that SC:O is not infringing SC2 copyrights, the court might deny damages for the faulty DMCA, because the e-mail basically told FF and PR that Stardock will use all aliens and settings from SC2, and that therefore Origins is infringing, and therefore FFand PR had to contest SC:O distribution because they could reasonably expect infringing material inside the game.
Which would be a great outcome for Stardock considering their current predicament where they tried to trademark the copyrighted aliens they also created, then published, content for.

Gamedaily has an opinion about this too, but apparently they think GotP would be done under Activision's umbrella.
Anyway, their opinion abbreviates as "Too late for an effective DMCA, wrong timing for maximum damages/financial influence, and the DMCA also seems to be abusing the procedure of using the legal court system. And the fight seems to less one between corporations, than between (former) family members, who often seek maximum hurt instead of best solutions."...
I dismiss that notion on he basis of one of the parties stating they were going to infringe via email before they launched their lawsuit.
