Thanks for these resources.
Of course, I just went off the idea that an emulator was copying something.

Patent then would make more sense.
As far as subtracting from legality, to apply here would be "copying the copyrighted".

To the other one, I wasn't intent on conspiring against any development or emulators and didn't question where the situation was "legal". I was only curious as to an idea where it might not be entirely legal.

As to it not being copyrighted, that is their design.

The problem about answering stuff normal is that you only give us 50 minutes total since you asked the first time before getting angry. That, and trying to decipher your grammar, or lack thereof.

Long story short:
If you live in the US,
AND
You own:
1. An N64 system
2. The maximum number of controllers you would use
3. A physical copy of every rom/game you play using project 64
THEN yes you are "legal".

That's a very short and awful way of saying it, because 'technically' you're not legal. Just because US law says something does not mean that US courts have to follow that law. You will be hard pressed to find a court in the US that will convict someone who is simply playing a rom on the computer if they have already purchased the means to play it from Nintendo in the 'normal' way.

So there you go. However, be aware that if a court finds you guilty, it's not my fault.

And I am sorry if I rambled a bit on this thread in general. If I have bothered anyone, please accept my apologies for spamming it.

You didn't pay for the movie. You paid for a pressed DVD and a license to play the DVD's content on a region-locked and approved DVD player. Isn't that what's (ethically) wrong, here?

yeah but what happens when someone wants to release a n64 compilation on a future system, or even more games on the wii. You guys have already watered down the N64 scene. nobody will buy those compilations or downloads if you guys are playing them on the puter. Not really "abandonded".
If anything I think that's a little more illegal to charge money for this. You know you guys are making money off others hard work, I guarantee goldeneye took more time than any of you put into this. Yet you're riding those heels. Nobody would want this emulator if it wasn't for the copyrighted material!!!!!!Period.
I think half of you taking money for this are crooks (please beta test for me!!!). And the others that paid......please. I got mine for free where you guys log in to say that they're full of viruses. Works fine for me. If you want to "donate" give Tom Spiers $20 and get GameEx you won't regret it.
You guys are prima donnas for bitching everybody out when all they ask is when will it be released for free. Are all you MFers making money off this? Don't think so, I've never paid for an emulator and never will. unless you OWN an original on a cart or a disk or even your name on a copyright, it is illegal. I'm finished....... Block, and Ban.
