Nintendo been in the news again lately, this time for getting another ROM site to take down all their ROMs under threat of legal penalties. I’ve been kind of split on this issue for a long time. One one hand, all game companies are well within their rights to defend their IP, but I’m not so sure they always should especially if they don’t provide a legal way for fans to acquire the games. So, lately I’ve been thinking that there needs to be a “public domain” option for games too. If the makers won’t provide, then there has to be a legal way for someone else to do so.
