Oh, so MSX-DOS 2.xx is now free of copyrights? When did that happen? Wink. Oh now I see: as long as it's accompanied by software that needs MSX-DOS 2.xx to run, it's okay to copy it Wink.Some years ago, I don't remember exactly when. ASCII formally declared in a Japanese Magazine that it athorized the distribution of the MSX-DOS system files for software that requires it for operation. I never said it was free of copyrights tho, I don't know what gave you that idea...

Okay, I removed the link in my previous post to prevent you all getting a nasty headache from seeing links to 'warez' Wink.Thanks! Don't worry about us getting headaches tho. All we do is mod the link Wink

And speaking of linking to 'warez' - what about linking to music from copyrighted software (rearranged or original)? Sorry, but I cannot help feeling this stinks of hypocrisy.This ofcourse does give us headaches..... What to do with that small group of MSX users that will always bitch and whine?!? I guess you guys would be a lot happier if we didn't allow anything remotely related to copyrighted issues... Well, keep it up, and you might just have it your way! Big smile

'I don't do warez - I emulate' WinkYou can do whatever you want to do my friend... Just don't do it here Wink

Okay thanks for the infomation, I am glad that's sorted out. By the way: Didn't you mean MSX-DOS 2.xx system files? Or are both MSX-DOS-ses free to distribute with software that requires it?

Thanks! Don't worry about us getting headaches tho. All we do is mod the link Wink

Well I thought It'd better I removed the link before one of the moderators did it Wink.

Bitching and whining? Wow you're going to force a ban on me because I spoke my mind about what I feel is an inconsistancy in the MRC policy? Wink. Very sorry you think I am a group of MSX users. Thanks anyway for pointing 'us' to the MRC policies. Big smile.

You can do whatever you want to do my friend... Just don't do it here Wink

When did I do it then? And what the hell is that openMSX/blueMSX thing I've been reading so much about? Wink.

snout: The quote you're referring to now was my response to the 'bitching and whining' bit of Sonic's post.

Or are both MSX-DOS-ses free to distribute with software that requires it?If I remember correctly, if was some time ago, it specifically mentioned the system files. As I recall this covered 'all' versions of MSX-DOS by ASCII. I don't know if such a thing would include the HSH DOS2 versions though, if there even is such a thing.

Well I thought It'd better I removed the link before one of the moderators did it Wink.That's always better, yeah... Some visitors get really paranoid when they see the word {modded} on their screen.

Thanks anyway for pointing 'us' to the MRC policies. Big smile.I don't know, are you banned? Wink It's more or less like snout said, it gets really boring to defend the no-warez policy time after time. It's only worse when people draw the 'good-old' parallel to music and remakes, since the only thing that does is edge us towards a more strict level of no-copyright-issues where, I guess, we really wouldn't like to end up. Ofcourse the level of legal-responsability of linking to a site with a remake or a copyrighted ROM file is quite different. Basically MRC it trying to walk the grey line that will keep it out of trouble while it can still be a nice source of information for its users.

When did I do it then? And what the hell is that openMSX/blueMSX thing I've been reading so much about? Wink.Well, by it I mean the 'emulation of certain software' Wink Perhaps you could set up a forum somewhere where it could be done? Be sure not to link to it from MRC tho! Tongue

btw.. now that we're talking about (c) .. would MRC report news about, and review, a re-arrange music-CD that's for sale on a fair, based on MSX-game tunes by (former) MSX gamecompanies?

Sure! Just make sure you have all the royalty contracts, signed by the original composers and copyright owners, duely authenticated by a notary public and translated by a certified Dutch translator. Oh, in threefold of course... Tongue

Koolie! Big smile

I agree, that's why I removed the link myself. Ah! I see you like the word {modded} too! Wink.

Well, according to this, I'm not banned Wink. And about defending the 'no-warez policy', it seems you don't have one as linking to specific things is banned when.... Oh hell, it's just a matter of how PC you want to be Wink. And maybe I wasn't clear enough: I just wanted to put my opinion on 'warez' out there regarding those precious policies. Sorry if I didn't make the joke more obvious and some felt the need to take it personally Wink.

Reminds me of a small city I live nearby: "It's okay as long as no-one talks about it" Wink.

Well, by it I mean the 'emulation of certain software' Wink Perhaps you could set up a forum somewhere where it could be done? Be sure not to link to it from MRC tho! Tongue

'Certain software'... NOW you're REALLY getting me curious! Big smile.

Again: "It's okay as long as no-one talks about it" Wink.

... awful lot of Wink's used this time Wink.

Never give up MSX! Have fun! Big smile

I'd say we'd review such an arrangement, Wolf.
