    Somehow this was a "WARE" and someone commented:
    "WTF is with you and warez?"

    I'M SORRY, BUT IT'S VERY CONFUSING WHEN SOMETHING IS A WARE AND SOMETHING ISN'T.
    Previously, I posted a low-quality version of the hidden Super GameBoy Credits music wondering what that was and SOMEHOW THAT WASN'T A WARE.

    warez is the share of roms, isos or something that might caught the attention of nintendo or other parties and shut this website down...
    if you post a game, even a modified one, if it has content that belongs to a company like nintendo, isn't allowed.

    that credit song was very likely ignored either because the mods didn't noticed or gave it a slack (maybe it was hosted in youtube?)

    if you want to share a modified game (for example a rom hack) you are required to "remove the copyright" part which usually its done by giving users the patch that only contains the modification part.

    No, it was hosted to a music hosting platform, a mod contacted me that the problem was I named "MarioC***'* ********" (cencored that on purphose)
    So, if I post it again with all the paths removed, it is allowed.

    it's very simple to understand what you can share or not :
    if you created it, it's fine.
    if you didn't, then you can't share it : you need to ask permission to its original author.



    ask yourself : is it mine ? does it contains anything (picture, sound, data, code, etc.) created by someone else and it's supposed to be sold and the person is not making money if I share it ?
    this is the main offense : providing for free something usually sold.

    but money is not the only reason. you can be forbidden to share something free too (something can be free but copyrighted, or specifically asked not to rehost/share).
    so, to make it simple, if it's yours there's no problem, if not be sure you have author's agreement.

    Hmm, makes sence. I'll look out for that then.
