I would suggest that anyone interested in the complicated issues of copyright laws, contacting authors of abandonware and so on research the NTLK archives from--IIRC--January to May 2010. (I'm doing a little guessing here, I haven't actually checked this.)

I seem to recall there was a discussion on who had been contacted, what results there were, etc. Of course, that was two years ago, much could have changed.

I thought we had beat the topic to death then...I guess I was wrong, though, as apparently it wasn't quite dead yet. 


"The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place." --Douglas Adams
