What you mean is, abandonware isn't legal, regardless of what the disclaimers propose. But abandonware is in reality just a term for old games that aren't sold in stores or produced anymore, hence they're "abandoned" by the developers/publishers.

In reality it's really just a different term for pirated software. If permission has been given by the copyright owners, it's become freeware. A game can never really "become" abandonware.
