Wrong. Under copyright law a company retains full rights to any and all
products regardless if they are being redistributed or not. If you
redistribute those files against Code Factory's written permission you
could find yourself facing fines or being sued for possible damages if
they decided to update those games and resell them again at a future date.
A case in point. My earlier title Montezuma's Revenge is technically
abandonware do to issues with the original company that holds the
copyrights. That, however, does not mean I have given people absolute
right to redistribute keys and the game with impunity. Sad to say I know
people have already done so, thinking it was ok because it is not
currently available, and now I am rewriting my key generator for
Mysteries of the Ancients to keep those who did not pay for the game
from getting a free upgrade to MOTA.
but just how i awreade sayd, not being distributed anymore means
abandonware and abandonware means distributable.
guys, they don't care.
