I don't understand your point.

About my problem... eh...
Warez sites cannot be posted here due to forum rules.
But it seems some warez sites are allowed Smile
No credibility to forum rules Sad

With all these posts, I am almost sure PRotieh is cbsfox's (Marcos Daniel) friend. It is the same kind of people. Only want to FUD, troll and flame others. Entered to my ignore vermin list.

Also, it doesn't matter what the software at MSX Files are or aren't. If even their true creator don't care or at least didn't 'till now, why would some moron like you care for this. I tell you: FUD. Some people can't shine even on small communities like MSX one, so they go give trouble to other, trying hypocritly to defend no one's rights, just to increase their own proud.

Thanks Chardson!

I was starting to think the same, that PRotieh was cbsfox's, and when he called me "fat boy", I was sure of it. From now on he can speak whatever he wants, I'm no longer replying to him...

It's still warez Samor Smile if anyone cares about it is a totally different discussion.

The problem is the associations with the word "warez"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warez

I really don't feel SLotman's site is a part of that; of course, some of the software on the site is technically illegal - as far as that's concerned, I can't deny that, and I won't.

The term "abandonware", even if it's not used much together with MSX, would be much more appropriate:

As far as I'm concerned, the term abandonware was made up by people who want to make copying/downloading copyrighted classic software seem legal. I have bad news: it isn't. But that is all beside the point. Once again, it's about the MRC policies on linking to these software titles, whatever nametag you put on it. As for linking to sites that contain copyrighted software: we'd rather not, but you might have noticed that we don't link to -for instance- MSXFiles with 'download [name of game] for free now!', but we do link to MSXfiles when -again, for instance-, SLotman releases a nice game for MSX (loved that snowball game ^_^).

Simply put, the MRC is responsible for the contents of the MRC and the potential results that might follow out of legal actions. In the very early stages of the MRC we have made our guidelines and have sticked to it ever since. Even then, the contents of the MRC almost got us into legal trouble a couple of times. We have successfully defended our guidelines towards the Japan Computer Gaming Association, and although they don't agree completely with our point of view, it means a lot more to us that the people who are defending a large part of the copyrights we're most often talking about condone our activities, than the fact that there is a very small group of people who consistenly don't. You might not like our guidelines, the guidelines might not seem clear to you, but that is your problem, not ours. We are not enforcing our guidelines on other websites, we're only asking our visitors to stick by our policies on our website. In return, we can spend most of the time on focusing on the real and recent MSX activity and guarantee the MRC is here to stay for many, many, many years to come.

SLotman, your site has a lot of great contributions: original games, SG-1000 ports, the reciently released Infocom adventures... keep on your GOOD work. Smile
