We protect RCK, nobody else. I can't see any real hypocrisy here. The chances are nearly zero that somebody would sue RCK for uploading old ADF images. Except 2-3 all Amiga companies from the past are bancrupt or merged into major labels who haven't any clue these days what an Amiga is/was.
WB and Kickstarts should be free (just like the Atari ST TOS), yes. But it won't happen in the near future i'm afraid.
SPS: That's another story. It's their decision, not EABs.
