Did they (hard workin' people) complain about those thousends roms? (Or it's again another greedy company like Nintendo that is complaining?)
I'm not sure if you're trying to say if Cloanot is helping or not helping Amiga scene... Can you be more specific?
Just small example. I'm talking to someone who never had an Amiga. He moved from C64 to PC. I explain him that Amiga had nice sound/gfx, that a lot of C64 games have been made on Amiga too and that they look and play better.
He likes to try it, but it is illegal until he buys roms from Cloanto. (and rest of the crap that they sell)
And this is where his interest in Amiga ends.
