I think we should outlaw even the discussion of repros, bootlegs, illegal game roms and other such black market materials that contribute to the deterioration of the fabric of not only society but the universe. Or at least move any discussion or debate on the topic to its sock drawer on the other side of the room in the form of its own forum. It just seems like every time these things get mentioned there's a raucous and people get upset. We should probably just ban people from talking about it all together, or at least keep it somewhere it won't lodge a sideways starfish in someone's anus.

It's been a laughingstock. You have people who bought something with their own money that didn't get what they ordered. You have someone who made a language patch and released it public domain but not really. Can you even release a enhancement for an item you don't have intellectual property rights to originally as public domain? Then they want credit for it. Except the item had no tangible value to begin with other then their own time and effort. This is all a multiple by zero equals zero scenario. Danny DeVito's agent is already getting him in on the movie deal rights.

Not public domain... creative commons noncommercial license. They don't want credit for it, they don't want their name attached to a product being sold illegally. You don't need IP rights to release the patch... that's why the patch isn't distributed with the ROM. It's not just about some douchebag profiting off other people's work, he doesn't want you distributing patched ROMs around the internet in non-tangible form either.

It's the same logic we use to beat up on illegal workers. We blame poor people willing to take far less than minimum wage because where they come from $5 an hour is such an ungodly unfathomable amount they'll gladly take it. But we almost never go after the Citizens who employ these people. If our citizens didn't want to help contribute to slave labor and making thier own profits increase these illegals wouldn't have anywhere to work. But instead of blaming the problem on those who facilitate, allow, demand, require and illegally pay out on these kinds of workers we zone in the people who are willing to work 60 hour weeks. We give the people with real power and control a pass but have no problem beating up on his illegal employee who couldn't possibly work without the blessing of the citizen and business owners who are not only complicit in this illegal endeavor they encourage and facilitate it.

I was thinking on this last night, it seriously defies explanation to me why people are willing to shell out $30, $50, $100 for these reproduction carts.

And then I though of an intended insult flung my way as soon as I entered the last discussion.

> Of course just obtain illegal roms and play them privately in secret.

...It's a question of legitimacy. You guys doing this think that because you're handing someone money and they're handing you something that for all intents and purposes looks like a genuine article, you're doing this "the right way". You're paying for the game you want to play, and thus it's fine. Ignoring the fact that it's NOT legitimate, the ROMs injected into these carts is downloaded from the exact same sites those dirty emulator bois download their stuff from and that you're being taken advantage of, you feel like a cash transaction puts you in the clear. You COULD have gone after the legitimate game, but this is close enough, it's paid for. The original would require another system/a time machine/many hundreds or thousands of dollars more to play. So you throw a little money at the problem and let someone else solve it for you, but just don't think too hard about it.

I wasn't aware of that, but I bet sure as crap that it sold out. Because of course it did. I honestly thought better of the gaming community, when Capcom put their stamp of approval on that $125 Street Fighter 2 repro, I was like "Nobody will buy that." But it fudging sold out day one, didn't it? Jesus.

But at least at that point, I can look at it and say "It's authorized." THAT has some legitimacy. No matter how retarded.

It actually took a while, at least a week, to sell out on the Capcom store (possibly because people didn't realize it was up in two different places). It's like when DC reprints Action Comics #1 except instead of giving it away as a free promo, or selling it for normal game price, they priced it as a super collectible raer variant L@@K.

Nobody is doing any of this on this site. Until talk of this is outlawed by Bill, these threads will likely remain. Free Speech and all. Someone please direct me to the specific line that says something along the lines of "all talk direct or indirect to that of reproduction carts will be result in immediate shutdown of account." I'm sure this wasn't the proper place for Boston to mention having issues with the site. Perhaps NintendoAge was a better place. I mean hell, they have a official stickied forum topic dedicated to this discussion: how to find them, the best places to go, etc.

If I was a horrible person I could invoke "See Something, Say Something" in regards to the firearm talk on this site. I wouldn't need any basis for it either other then concern. I'm not a horrible person though, and believe in to each their own. I may not agree, I may toss out a sarcastic remark, but I'm not going to go batcrap crazy and be adamant about it.

Yet the discussion continues. It's turned into a epic pissing match. It's not what this site normally represents.

SirConnery

Of course I can. This is the whole point of "See Something, Say Something". I don't need to do any due diligence beside saying "I'm concerned".

There is no current US law prohibiting the sale and purchase of repro carts. Instead there is a ban on these transactions on this website. Until there's a direct ban on them like that of contraband and all auctions are prohibited on places like eBay, there's no point in dragging this on any further.

Either way it's a weak strawman argument. Just understand the point I'm making. If we're going to nitpick things around here, we had better nitpick everything equally. Until then all of this is completely moot and ridiculous.

I don't understand though that's why I asked the question. You're concerned that people are talking about something completely legal, just because you don't like it? What's your concern exactly? People are talking about guns! Yikes! I thought piracy for personal gain was illegal. I'm no law expert though so maybe I'm wrong. Owning guns isn't illegal though last I checked.

Owning and having a license is perfectly legal. You're off the hook Dustin! I've read other things that are borderline though.

This too is borderline. There isn't a clear cut process for dealing with them beyond that of what Bill has put forth. There isn't a process being currently enforced by copyright holders since many of these games have aged out their copyrights. There's a big business in dealing with them because that business is allowed to exist and is willingly cultivated by the gaming community and industry as a whole.

Well, since zero video games have been around for 95 years, I'd say we've got a bit to wait before any of these actually hit public domain or their copyright holders release them. It's not really borderline, it's just morally objectionable. The legality is clear, it ain't legal.

Woman. Who's soapboxing? You read the rules, you know you're wrong. You've been swinging and missing for 2 days now. It was absolutely a bootleg site, it has the word "reproductions" in the URL for fudge's sake. And if it wasn't a repro site and it wasn't a member asking for help in their recourse resolving a problem (attached to a repro site), yes, I wouldn't have said anything. That was an incredibly astute observation, Prime.

Yeah. I'm getting my butt kicked by you. Like if you cared about the rules you'd have messaged bill or another admin and been like there's something you may want to shut down. But you gave us hundreds of words not on the rule, maybe you spent 6 words on that and the other hundreds were why everyone else is an idiot and why a guy who had a piece of veal in 1986 is responsible for the slaughter of baby calves. Essentially. I don't know what you though I had hoped would come from this. I just wanted to agitate you and clearly that objective was achieved.

You're such a fudging herb dude. I've had PM conversation with you and delt with you in the forums. I know the level of your nutcase. It's the worst kind because you think you're normal as fudge.

Literally half of this I don't even know what you're saying. Uh... "Thank you!"

I moderated the thread, nothing happened. I'm always down for a discussion though, it's just that some people took it personally and got defensive. 25% my fault because it may not have been obvious that my first post was less combative and more "duh". If you ask "Why do you care what I do with my money", of course I'm going to respond to why I feel it affects me, it'd be silly for you to expect I'd just clam up, right? I may be right, I may be wrong, everyone's got opinions and politics attached to this crap. I find it interesting that the best you can come up with in its defense is to insinuate I'm white knighting. Innnnnteresting. So it's not about the repros, then, it's about me. Flattered, but I'll pass; sounds boring. Let's talk about fools and their money.

I also DL the crap out of Earthbound, Snatcher, Magic Knight Rayearth, etc. I DL games that I normally wouldn't pay for anyway. I BUY games like Vanquish and Trails of Cold Steel and Metroid Samus Returns. I DL roms of Crusader of Centy and Air Zonk.

Yeah I just played through a whopping $700+ worth (two whole games) of PC Engine games for disc cost plus the power consumption to burn them. It's the exact same experience except I'm not giving some chode money for the privilege. In this case I think both of these titles have been reproduced by @DiamondDave 's best friend Tobias.
