    Liigality!

    These are illegal:
    a) All custom channels EXCEPT bbc.wad and one that only I have.
    b) All themes EXCEPT ones for use with MyMenu.
    c) All IOS WADs, including cIOS WADs.
    d) All System Menu WADs.
    e) Redistributing all Team Twiizers products, in WAD or regular form (HBC, DVDx, etc). This is because they contain notices that they can ONLY be gotten from them, not redistributed.
    f) Redistributing all homebrew programs that the author has not allowed distribution of.
    g) Any of the above patched in any way or form.

    These are not illegal to share, not including the DCMA:
    a) The common key, SD key, SD IV key, etc.
    b) Patches to existing files, in search and replace format (MenuLoader/MenuPatcher/Starfall/Preloader Hacks/etc).
    c) Applications that patch files that are illegal to distribute, though it IS illegal to distribute the patched files themselves.
    d) All homebrew apps, libogc, devkitpro, etc, as long as the application's license allows it.

    How are Team Twiizers products illegal, while homebrew apps made with libogc (which contains stolen code from the wii SDK) are legal?

    Actually, I'm pretty sure the common key (et al) are illegal to distribute. Some people do distribute them, but it doesn't make it legal.

    Then you might want to make it clear in your first post that you're talking about distribution legality. Also stop flouting "the wad that only I have" - if you're the only person that has it there's no point bringing it up, is there?

    This thread is stupiid. What are you trying to get at with this? The people who understand copyright law will find this useless, the morons who know nothing will simply ignore the thread.

    it is illegal in USA though because of the DMCA

    Wow, lots of retards nit-picking at spelling, commenting stuff like "fail" and people who seem to be completely missing the point of this thread. No wonder this place is called GBAFail.

    I agree with ice on this, there is quite a bit of confusion on this topic.

    @ice: So this "legality" stuff is about "international" copyright laws (if there is such a thing)?

    There is no such thing as international law only whether your country recognizes those laws.

    No, its about general copyright laws that exist in many countries. I didin't include DMCA though, because that is USA speccific.

    Im sorry, but this is phrased extreemly badly and needs to be corrected.
    Team Twiizers products are not illegal in any way, or at least any of the files they release arent illegal.

    Uploading their files so that others can download their files from a server that they dont control is illegal as its a violation of their copyright, but the files are not illegal.
