So we can assume that 100+ games will be probably threaten just like APC or TCP here on EAB and rest of the internet?! How is that gonna help scene and community? This is gonna screw amiga emulation the same gog screwed DOS and some amiga stuff, but at larger level.

Antstream are not compelled nor do they have any authority to police other peoples sites. The copyright holders of the relevant games might feel the need to, because as we all know, if you don't enforce your copyright, then expect to lose it as you did nothing to protect it.
You must known that you are wrong, just don't like to see it, yet. GOG has the same license for old games and yes, as soon as they acquired license, the would contact all abandoware sites with threat of shutting them down if 'now their' games were not removed.

The same shit will happen here, and this time you are part of it.

Thank you for legal explanation about software. It sounds ironic when you talk about it.
