So if you buy these Amiga Classix CD's, you are ultimately funding the people who produced them - and these people are commercial pirates. Sure these are old games yes, but if they are depriving the original makers of money, it amounts to exactly the same thing.
Are you saying Epic Interactive are pirates then? From what I gathered, particularly with packs 2+3 at least, they obtained legal permission from the game authors to make certain games available on their CDs.
