No its not the legality of obscure games that is irking me. I do have several sets of Mame with obscure games and I have bought a few boards too.

What I'm interested is the apparent lack of respect for IP. If you have access to a company that either holds copyright or a license, and the project is not doing anything illegal, why not contact the said company for permission to dump/break copy protection?

Its not because I object to the accomplishments of what Mame has brought to the millions of fans, its the IP of those companies that are still operating that are being ignored. Nintendo is still around.

Exidy developers allowed the use of roms didn't they? Would the other major arcade players that are still operating, not provide the same services?

Mame is replicating a platform, not copying games, so why is there the lack of consideration for the manufacturer?

What has been done is remarkable, granted, but where is the responsibility of permission versus blatancy.

You might be wondering why I ask so many questions, but I am writing my thesis on arcade emulation, and these types of questions are being investigated.
