Default janm.l - Want To Upload The Following...

Hi everybody!

I am detrashing my rooms, therefore I found some abandonware I once adored. I could offer:

-Stunts (4DSportsDriving) (cracked version) with great tracks!
-Master of Orion (cracked version)
-Comanche
-Cool Croc Twins
-Pizza Connection
-Syndicate American Revolt
-Alien Legacy

Please tell me whether there are still copyright protections and if you are interested...

Yours JM

of course there is one existing. I played the game some dozen times up to the end... and it is the best out of the Trilogy, because it does not have this mess of administration in it.

So, they let you distribute the games, although they still have the copyright? Good!

Otherwise, I think, once the copyright expired, you have the right to distribute cracked versions, too.

You should consider to add some track designs to the stunts archive... there is no copyright problem, I guess.

so, cool crock twins left (comanche is not important unless I do not like to play abandoned flight simulation games)
Cool Croc twins is funny, but not that cool I remembered it. You have to play it with 2 players.

And for Alien Legacy you wouldn't get the right to distribute it?

Can I find out via

http://www.theesa.com

whether there is still a copyright? Or what is about this ESA thing? So far, for me, ESA was = European Space Agency

cu, JM

The copyright expire after 90 years at the current law-setup.

ESA is an anti-piracy organization.

I'd word it differently.
ESA is the gardener's dog of gaming market. They will not lift a finger for games of their members to be still avaible on market, but they will lash out at anyone who does as much as give a buy link for a distributor who still has them.

There is not much more to be explained about it.
