Quote from: SumixXam on October 05, 2015, 11:15:14 amDoes anyone who sells a bootleg own the IP to the game for which they stole?
Quote from: SumixXam on October 05, 2015, 11:55:11 amI'm not referring to unlicensed originals. I'm referring to all the bootlegs being sold on our forums, your thread included. I'm really not trying to stir things up here but let's be honest. It doesn't matter when a bootleg was released. It still infringes on the IP of the creators and as such would go against one of your arguments about whether a game should be allowed to be sold. The point I'm making is that this topic goes beyond personal interest which I am sorry to say seems to be the case here.

Quote from: hvc01 on October 05, 2015, 01:19:57 pmI don't believe the market will be flooded with reproductions fcgamer despite 80sFREAK 's best efforts and intentions. ☺That said I don't see any harm with a reproduction marker somewhere on the reproduction to help out those collecting originals, whether pirates, fakes, bootlegs, reproductions, unlicensed or licensed. Stick disk-kun on it or something, he's been waiting for an opportunity ☺
Quote from: SumixXam on October 05, 2015, 12:50:37 pmDave. The thing is, I have no issue with your sale thread and I truly don't think anyone else does either. What I do have an issue with is this back and forth squabble that's been happening over the past couple weeks. It's been progressing quite quickly lately and its sort of the attitude that we are trying to avoid (and that which NA is known for)
Quote from: 80sFREAK on October 05, 2015, 09:52:43 pmWhat is the difference between repro of "unreleased prototype"(it's quite easy to make one, by creating story behind and hardware), unlicensed "originals" and "translations"?Chegs, you forgot that Pyramid is rip-off of Columns.Those, who saying, that Tengen Tetris is "original" should read page on wiki It is no more original than endless hacks of Mario.fcgamer, i have nothing to discuss with you, until you figure out how "fast burning chips and solder couple wires" and read some basic wikipedia articles.
Quote from: fcgamer on October 05, 2015, 12:02:53 pmI think you are misunderstanding, and the below definitions don't really say anything at all...Those two below definitions are clearly about producing copies of software, books, dvds, etc without legal rights.
