It would be problematic, at best, to include the entire TOSEC set in a commercial product. You'd have to ask every single copyright holder for permission, which would not only be for the game itself, but also for any cracks and intros since they are copyrighted works as well.

Not long ago, you could buy an 'Amiga Classix' pack in various supermarkets her in DK (and probably many countries) which included a Competition Pro joystick and a CD with an emulator and some games. They had to withdraw it from the market though, as the legality was questionable. Many of the games also had crack intros on them.

The way I see it, Cloanto gets the rights or permission for everything he puts in his packages, so it won't be a huge collection, but he won't get into trouble with it.
