This is what we're talking about BTW.

If you thought the old MAME license was a bit weird, check this out and think through the ramifications.

Anyhow, the rumor is they've had a long history of people ripping them off in various ways so this is their reaction. MAMEDev reacted differently to such shenanigans years ago but also did a non-OSI-compliant license for the longest while. It's no different, to be honest.

Anyhow I think we're done here, I don't want to see any bashing of other emulators around here, so thread lock
