I don't think so.
The Atari 2600 and colecovision emulators are freeware ...public domain ...whatever you want to call them.

Quote from Gamespot !

Are emulators legal?
Generally, yes. In 1982, precedent was set in the landmark Coleco vs. Atari case where Coleco produced an Atari 2600 emulator for the ColecoVision. Even recently, Sony was unable to prevent the distribution of the PlayStation emulator "bleem!". However, there have been emulators that used copyrighted BIOS code internally; those have generally found to have been illegal when distributed with that BIOS.

As for the games i downloaded they were stated to be public domain.
