A Background In Real-World Methods Of ROM Games
To the best of my knowledge, everything on this list is not only moral to download, but is also legal to download, which narrows the field quite a bit since these two things are absolutely not the same thing at all. There are many things which are perfectly moral to download but which are at the same time absolutely not legal to download and those things are not allowed on here. We’re trying to only include stuff that we know is as legal to download as we can ever know anything is. I should mention that the term “abandonware” is a moral term, not a legal term. Downloading abandonware is at the same time perfectly moral and totally illegal.

The chilling effect on the 6502 community would be brutal. If you were making a product to sell, you’d certainly get legal advice, or you’d take your own advice, at your own risk. You’d be forming a view about the state of the law and the stance of the intellectual property holders. The assets for a game would not even approach that amount. Also, Backup solutions involving Tapes, CD-Rs, and DVD-Rs have been used in businesses building PC games for quite some time.
