Legal Issues with NEW SCI Games 

Just curious if anyone knows if there would be any legal problems with releasing a game made with SCI Companion and using ScummVM commercially?

I'm not talking about using any existing IP but making your own new game using SCI Companion and using ScummVM as the interpreter.

I have no idea what the actual fallout would be, whether anyone at ActiVision would understand that SCI is something they own or not. However, I would suggest if you're going to do something commercial to just use AGS. It can do almost anything SCI can do and more. Plus more compatibility with modern systems and multiple OS's.
