It's possible they're trying to get in under the radar. >> Copyright law though is weird, there are some cases where someone else can own different rights to the same title, kinda like what Joss did to get Serenity made when Fox still owned the TV rights for Firefly.

It's also possible they'll just cut the word "Macross" (or leave it in Kanji) from it, and so long as they don't show the same mecha from SDF: Macross they'd presumably be safe. They own the likeness of the VF-1 Valkyrie, not the VF-25 Messiah, and they might own poor Minmei, but not Sheryl Nome. Speculation though, because copyright law is crazy.
