Are they illegal? What if I own the games of the ROMS I download?

    I think if you own the game, you should also be able to have the ROM. I don’t know if that is they way of the law, but that’s the way I think it should be.

    I agree (on both your opinion and not knowing the law). I used to own games, that I did not sell…but I don’t have them any longer. Don’t know how I feel about that.

    I’ve had stuff (games, CDs) stolen and don’t feel like i’m breaking the law if i have a digital copy…but my feelings could be wrong.

    I believe they are technically illegal unless you own the cartridge – but then again if you were to go and buy the game in a store now Nintendo wouldn’t make a single cent off of the sale since they don’t make them anymore, you can only buy used ones not new ones.

    Same thing goes for really old music that never made it to CD’s or is no longer produced. No one makes money off of it even if you buy it.
