umm... GreatLoad? That's a legal rom. It's called homebrew. It's independent guys like us creating unofficial games.

The site also specifically states no warez and illegal rom talk nor linking to such things. I personally don't see where it does link to illegal content, so could you PM me and prove me wrong? :?

Old games? WHERE? I honestly don't see anything! No offense, but how can I fully believe you if I don't have evidence? :?

I could say there's code by microsoft in ReactOS, but would you believe me unless I showed you where? Of course not! It's the same here. One can say anything, but to back it up makes it worthwhile.

One would think the fact betaluva linked to Pitfall, and then asked us to delete it after testing, implies that fact.

but was it from the site I linked to? (I'll PM you the site link)

EDIT: Well, from what I can understand, apparently the games and roms on the site I linked to are supposedly illegal only because they use the game manufacturers name. I'm not exactly studying law, but isn't that a little bit extreme?

I'm going to lay out the reasoning behind Greatlord's position. Recreating games, duplicating its mechanics and etc, you'll likely be fine, so long as you don't duplicate its media. Copying its ingame graphics, you're no longer fine. Copying the original name and logo, you really are in legal hot water. I've seen companies send out cease and desist letters to several such project, though all of them are of more recent games. Duplicating the media is basically a copyright violation, illegal in most countries. While a company may decide to ignore these activities because of how old some of this stuff is, you are for the most part on borrowed time, since you don't know when a company may decide to care. We want to avoid dealing with such ambiguities and that's why Greatlord is coming down on this rather hard.

That said, it's not like we disrespect the work these people put in. We just choose a more careful approach to limit our exposure to things that may be legally questionable.
