IP and retroports

Well, whether we like it or not seems there might be theoretical and legal IP problems with porting other obsolete platform games across, as happened to Hypoonios, whether might be Arcade to Amiga, arcade to c64, amiga to atari, etc.

I personally feel that since this is mostly an hobby environment where financial gain is limited or nonexistant, some kind of legal safe haven need to be built. Have no power to lobby it but i think this is an important cross-community issue, mean all retro devs should probably discuss on it: maybe even contact organizations like EFF or similar local ones.

No, i know we are not entitled to ports (or even remakes) we had not received during the platform commercial life, but there is this personal sense of disappointment on see the platform not fully exploited as should be.

Some opinions about?
