You two are blowing things out of all proportion...
All im saying is that emulation is legally dodgy enough as it is, charging for it just makes things worse.
Doing things take time and effort whether its right or wrong in the eyes of the law. It doesnt change whether it is or not. Should a thief charge as much as a retailer because it took effort to steal it?
You cant tell me that emulating a system is perfectly legal. Charging or retailing for them denotes credibility - which they cannot claim as their work is replicating that of others.
And not everything someone does should be done for money... if you cant afford to do something - dont do it.
I shouldnt have started this thread if youre going to cite arguments like Speedball 2 on the GBA and the Star Wars DVD...you know full well these things are legit.
