Default Is this legal?

I won't mention the specific name of the site because that would be giving it free publicity, but I saw that there's a site that allows the downloading of roms for a monthly fee, and you can only run the games while the company's client software is running. I think that's a good idea.

The problem is, they use open source software to run the games.

I downloaded their client to see what was up and they use old versions of Gens, GNUBoy, Nester, z26 and ZSNES. And well, it pissed me off. Isn't the usage of these open source programs in commercial endeavours illegal? Or something like that?
