Make sure though on your site that you do not post any roms owned by Nintendo, Sony, a few others that I can't remember... Basically keep this as your rule of thumb for any roms that you want to share legally, if they can be bought at a store today like walmart or best buy then it should not be hosted.

If you violate the above info, your site will be hunted and shut down by the afore mentioned companies. They don't like people sharing out their IP.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do or say will be exaggerated or mis-quoted and used against you.

Nope

It's illegal if you don't have it. The whole '24 hours' thing is a myth.

Don't believe it

Unless you actually ask a lawyer. Anything anyone else tells you is BS.

Huh?

What do you mean 24 hours? Why would you have 24 hours to delete it? Sorry, I don't follow and I'm stumped.

he was saying that if you

he was saying that if you download a rom for a game that you do not own, you can LEGALLY keep it for 24 hours. this isn't true though, the fact is if you do not own the game, it's illegal to download the rom at any time

To twist it even further... If you do not have the exact revision of hardware that the rom matches to you still can not have it.

While the laws of roms and such are cut and dry, the old arcade roms from way back in the day are no longer actively policed. While you can not have them without the hardware that they go to, no one will penalize you unless you are making money off of them. I am hardcore into MAME for several years now and they have as their disclaimer on launching the roms that you have 24 hours to posses the rom and then you have to delete it.

Abandonware does not exist i know but that is essentially what a majority of the old game are now. The houses that made them have been bought up or split up and auctioned to the point that no one know who owns what anymore for the older games.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do or say will be exaggerated or mis-quoted and used against you.

Personally

Personally I like using home brew games. I tried making my own gba game but it's harder than one thinks and I am stumped at where to start even with a basic plot

Nintendo could make a bundle

Nintendo could make a bundle if they'd just sell their old games as roms on CD at game stores. Their "zero-tolerance for emulation" policy is just stupid in a profit-making sense.
