Says an MRC webmaster. And the translations I made I made as a Sargon-member. Two different groups with two different policies. And who says I did not get permission to make those translations? Tongue

I do.

I can't stand hypocrisy.
If you were talking as a MRC webmaster, you should have left it at your first reply to this thread. The MRC policy was made clear, period.
But no, after the discussion went into placing manuals on other sites than MRC, you still had to reply. And since you personally obviously do not have the highest morals (see the SELLING of CRACKED games) you are not the MRC webmaster who is best suited for discussing legal matters, IMO.

Thanks for your opinion. Let's not take this any further. My personal circumstances have little or nothing to do with me being an MRC webmaster. Every MRC crewmember knows and supports the MRC policies on MRC. My personal circumstances could for instance take this thread further in some useless but exciting discussion about this, but since I am an MRC webmaster, I think I better don't. Let's talk about it on Tilburg with a beer in our hands Wink

Although you're making me (and probably others) very curious about what you are talking about now, I suggest we don't take this thread further off-topic.

Like I said: let's have a beer in Tilburg and I will be very much pleased to hear your explanation.

So that's funny... hehe....
More advanced classic gaming and computing communities has already realised it's necessary to start thinking about ways to preserve old software and hardware. Floppy disks will start to fail, manuals will start to rotten, even hardware will stop to work. If you don't want to publish copyrighted material here, ok, that's your right, but don't always get in the way of people who really care about those things and want to preserve them or even share them with their fellow users. If there is any money to be done with the MSX community today, it is mostly due to pirated sofware which has been freely distributed over the Internet all these years. It has generated interest and helped to bring new members. Without this renewed interest MSX would be already dead by now, and there won't be any money to be done here. IMHO not all copyright infringment will generate losses to the legal owner. For example, lets supose I am a Star Wars fan and decide to create a nice t-shirt with some SW art printed on it. Lets say some fellow fans find my new t-shirt really nice and ask me to make copies to them. Of course I am going to charge for the material I will use, like the t-shirts themselves, transfers, brushes, etc. In the end I violated copyrighted material, but in turn I have helped to generate renewed enthusiasm around the movies and related merchandise. Just my 2 cents...

Exactly Opcode!!! How a simple topic like 'I want a konami manual' becomes again a copyright war whilst everybody has a shitload of copied games. Funet is the biggest shithole of them all.....

So f*ck*ng what... I give to much euro's to get me those original European Konami's... some of them are missing the original manual...

I see this topic of someone who wants to share scanned Konami manuals and I'm very happy. It's the only way to get me those missing manuals cause nobody sells them separate...

Instead of seein' a positive answer from somebody who says 'I have sum space left, let's dump m here' I see sum f*ck ups (excuse my language) who are whining about copyrights...

please, do me a favor, stick to the point...

Oh, my planet internet account gives me 25mb homepage space!! I can open it freely to put those .jpg on it cause I'm doing nothing with that space!!!

Maybe I didn't read thoroughly enough, but I thought the idea was brought up to host those manuals here, of which I only said that's something the MRC, due to the policies, can not do. I don't get in the way of anyone who wishes to put such a collection online. I just answered the question about whether it is legal or not. And it's not. But if you decide the risk is low, the damage small, an effort worth taking, sure, go ahead! Wink
