    Ah, ok... Well, I've got no idea. They are probably circumventing a copyright mechanism which has lately gotten illegal in some countries. On the other hand they have been developed by disassembling which should be legal. They might be infringing on some patents and maybe copyrights but how should anyone know? As long as Datel keeps selling it's mediaplayer thingies there probably isn't too much to be worried about.

    You can sell flash carts, but don't advertise them as a way to steal games, and definately don't preload them with illegal roms or anything dumb like that.

    It should be ok to preload them with moonshell, ds organizer, etc. DSDoom - as long as you only put the shareware version, and not an illegal copy of full version (don't listen to the idiots who cry 'abandonware!', you can still buy doom on id.com's website)
