Well I hope Dizzy is right though, that they're lying about the brazilian laws stuff... It indeed sounds strange to my ears.

Roll eyes (sarcastic) Depends how big the slice of pie is !

..............Once any pirate operation gets too uncomfortable for the profit makers it will get targeted.....though not neccercerly by totaly legal means.....once the pirates slice is in lost millions as opposed to thousands it makes sense to apply presure on local goverment agencies with shall we say incentives the operation can,t pay off...eg agreed hard foriegn curency loans ...that sort of get written off.
......but guy,s are we still talking about mega bucks or just a few exploited sad web searchers who believe their getting a bargain ?..........cable & satilite shopping channels are testament to the gross stupidity of certain " shopperhollics " who have to have something because its a " Bargain or Rare "........doesnt matter if its useless or crap they just want the acquisition....don,t anyone claim Ebay is any different!

We can marvel at some profiteers arrogance but while there are sheep to be sheared we can,t protect the whole flock....better to be a wolf and get your share

Brazil does have its laws on Intellectual Property, but they are not that enforced. It *IS* illegal to sell pirate copies of games and CDs but that is a commom crime, you can buy them everywhere in flea markets, not in real stores.

Although there has been a strong movement from the governmet to reduce piracy, as an answer to a lot of pressure from the USA government, the truth is that most people do not care (actually, most people cannot afford to buy a single original game, or even music CD).

Well some people aren't as lucky to be as clued up as you. Don't make em a dork. People who see these and think "Wow I used to have an Amiga, let's have a go with this" shouldn't be comdemned for their lack of googling. The people who are selling it should.

This kinda place gets on my nerves, making cash from other peoples work, and what a bunch of crap they talk they say:

We do not include any emulators or bioses files inside the CDs. Most of them are widely diffused around the internet so you will not have any trouble finding them
But if you look at the
Complete Amiga Col.
it states: Commodore Amiga - Kickstart Images 68

yeah we believe you NOT
