It's hard to call them developers and programmers. The "copyright holders" are bitching. Read this "publishers". Ownership of digital information should be reconsidered. Abandonware ,even warez cannot be stopped therefore different approaches should be taken like making everything free
"Abandonware is piracy, pure and simple."
-Pete Hines, Bethesda marketing and PR director
