The way I see it is for years video games were seen as disposable. These arcade games came out and people fell in love with them and then they were just wiped out of existence, you can never see them again. Society didn't accept this and that's why emulation is where it is. It's today's art form and society isn't going to let people make some art, make us love it, and then pull it out from under us indefinitely. It's not going to happen. We won't accept that. It doesn't matter if some douche bag wrote a law saying otherwise 100 years ago. I don't care what that asshole said or wrote. As for where to draw the line, everyone has a different opinion. I could say to you well maybe the companies need a couple of more years or else they might get fed up and dismantle and then the programmer wouldn't have a job, or I could say well the whole hierarchy needs to be redone. Whatever though, we have no power to change it. Not at this time anyway.
