reidman commented on Rumour: EarthBound Not Coming to Virtual Console:

I should have been more careful explaining the legal issues. I've updated my article, here's the part that's relevant to the discussion going on here:

You might be thinking, "sampling/references aren't enough to bring a lawsuit", and you'd be right. But it's also true that not everything in EarthBound is simply sampled/referenced, and even if the game was technically legal, that doesn't mean lawyers will be comfortable with it. They get paid to avoid lawsuits entirely, not to get sued and then say "here's why this lawsuit is stupid".
