Really? Dang, I knew European video game players had it horrible, but I didn't know that they took parts out of the instruction manual... No wonder today's generation is so screwed up.

You still haven't solved the minor problem of the game being, y'know, copyrighted and all. >_>

Global Police don't care.

Heck, I don't think Nintendo cares. Heck, I even think Miyamoto himself has ROMs.

Exactly so ROMs aren't illegal as long as you own the game and don't sell it!!!!!!!

Besides, if what you're saying is true, Windows Media Player would be illegal becuase it can copy music from a CD to your hard drive.

Nice job of retaining information, there.

Yeah, sure, it's perfectly legal to massively distribute ROMs on a filesharing network as long as you do it for free and own the game. Xenesis, we need more paper shredders here!

Just because the police don't care doesn't mean it's legal- just think about how the world would be if that sort of logic was followed. Like I said before...

As far as Shiggy having ROMs? Well, if he owns a copy of Animal Crossing, I can guarantee you that he does. :wink: Otherwise, I do believe I read in an interview that he's torn between both sides of the arguement, as he loves the idea that people are still playing old games, but he doesn't like the idea that the economy loses out. On a related topic, Yuji Naka just found out a month or two ago that the Sonic 2 Beta ROM, the one that Sonic Team thought was destroyed, has been circulating around on the 'net.

I had no such luck finding it. All of the downloads were either dead links, or had adverts at the start of the ROM.

It looks like Sega have tracked down the renegade copies.....

One might think that this is a very important thread. Maybe this should be sticky-ed or something? Its a very valuable thread, and if anything was to come up about copyrights and the like, people can refrence to this thread.

And it was entertaining, which makes a better read!

Any objections?
