Nice try EvulOpah Smile But Rikusu is right; the TS asked if those manuals could be hosted at MRC :

I wonder if there is some way to upload those manuals scanned, perhaps to downloads section (documents or images) of MRC...

And Rikusu is damn right those manuals cannot be hosted at MRC. Do what you like with your own webspace EvulOpah, Rikusu won't mind Smile

If someone owns an original cartridge, surely the ownship license includes that of the instruction book?

If a cartidge is sold without an instruction manual, surely the new owner is entitled to download a copy of the manual ?

If anyone wants to email me any then please feel free to do so - i dont mind hosting them - until of course i get an email from Konami demanding that I remove them, maybe I'll just put a disclaimer on my site.

Email anything useful to the email address on my web site.

Strictly speaking, no... The manual usually says "no part of this manual may be copied or reproduced by any means" or something like that.

In addition, the reselling of used software is often considered illegal.

Personally I agree that manuals for old games should be available, but for more recent things it can promote piracy a lot.

Absolutelly agree with you, opcode.

To evulopah : the original meaning of my post isn't "I want konami manual". Is "let's put all konami manuals together, maybe here at MRC, maybe in other URL if not".

The sense of my demand is as easy as opcode said : I usually visit forums and sites of abandonware. In this sites, scanned manuals and this kind of stuff are highly appreciated, due to the time that has been passed.

Normally there's absollutelly no trouble holding that (we are not selling anything... and is soooo old). MRC webmasters are fully granted to reject this option (is their site), so, let's look for another place (maybe funet?) Smile
