    I never knew about that other emulator TBH, then I eventually found out about Zsnes, used that for a long time, and eventually, to Snes9x.

    I never knew everything had a copyright-restriction until they hit the 75th year. But in some instances, 3rd party companies can end by going bankrupt for example, making it abondonware, so it can go online publicly. If this happens for 3rd party Nintendo games, rom sites may allow them back as abondonware.

    It's not always 75 years, but I think that's the standard more or less.
    In the case of companies, such as Nintendo or Disney, it can take more, as they seem so eager to milk the shit out of 50+ years products (like Disney).
    I think the copyright hold got extended in 1998, but I am unsure just how long that means for companies like them.

    funny thing is it's only 2 sites so far unless nintendo is suing/gag ordering as well more sites wonder if the person behind loveroms/love retro used fake info to register the domain taking every precaution including overseas servers and then you wonder how the lawyers found him that will make you question if the lawyers tactics of locating said rom site hosters are even legal

    I am not complaining. I still think what Nintendo is doing is right. I can't defend piracy. It's illegal, we all know it's illegal. Yes I do pirate game, but you don't see me having a fit over this mess. I thought everyone notices this by now...

    I doubt Nintendo much cares what you think about them if you were already downloading their stuff or are one of those pirates who tries justifying their actions instead of just being a chill pirate. They also probably don't care if you downloaded some complete sets which is really, really simple to do just saying.

    LoveROMs was taken down because they thought operating in the US was a good idea. Any site closing now is either paranoid or wanted to get out of the game anyway.

    I assume they just removed the links, not actual data(games) from servers...... am I right?

    A lot of people aren't informed at all. Nintendo had NOTHING to do with the closure of this site. And themselves are mentioning a new site with their uploads so nothing is lost.
    "Yeah, we lost a battle against Nintendo but here, we're making public another site with our same downloads for them to notice."

    This is an awful take. No one cares who you are, first and foremost. 95% of users here aren't people anyone thinks about outside of this site, and probably not even outside of this thread. Don't go thinking you're some special case. Secondly, is it right? Legally, only. Morally, fuck no. While TheIsoZone was not taken down by Nintendo, their host was intimidated by Nintendo's takedowns, and other DMCAs from numerous other companies at that, to the point that they're now moving the site somewhere else with new links, the point remains that Nintendo is going after sites that have more than just Nintendo games. There's shittons of alpha, beta, unreleased, and abandoned games on these sites, and for many, these are infinitely more interesting than any dumb Nintendo game you can usually buy on the e-shop.

    Get off your high horse, acting like you're some saint in a sea of moral degeneracy. I can defend piracy, because the EU released a 300 page study that shows companies like Nintendo aren't affected by it in the slightest, and that it helps with preservation. If not for piracy, the west would likely not be exposed to characters and media like Nosferatu, and thus the Dracula mythos. This means we also wouldn't have game series like Castlevania, or vampires in popular roleplaying games such as D&D, The Elder Scrolls, and so on. Piracy can bring great things for performance in games, where the DRM is too intrusive, such as that one Ass Creed game, or it can allow you to *actually fucking install games* in the case of Civilization 3, which is next to impossible to install today, because the DRM will refuse to let the game load solely because it refuses to run on any systems with virtual disk software.

    TL;DR There's great things to come with piracy, and the negatives are greatly overstated. Get off your high horse. You're not a saint, just pretentious.

    Don't worry my friends - the community will help each other out. I still know a good place for those old xbox ISO which really are becoming hard to find!
