Default Downloading rom legally for nOObs

I got tired of stupid nOObs not reading the 1. rule and looking for roms here, at wrong place. So i decided to introduce them to p2p and get rid of them ...Hopefully.
So, nOObs, read this:

Well, in theory, downloading a rom is legal for 24 hours and/or if you own the cartridge, but I agree with you.

Nope -- a copy being distributed illegally is illegal -- for even 1 second... and even if you own the cartridge.

The only real way to have a legit copy of a ROM is to dump it yourself from a physical copy of a game you own.

Nope, the act of making the copy is also illegal. <img src=smilies/eek13.gif>

Only for newer games that display "Do not make any backups of this product" on the opening screens.

OK no offense, but you're a n00b too, Mr. 189 Posts to His Name. That said, it is also against the rules to post WHERE you can find ROMs and ISOs.

It would be in your best interests to remove that link.

Even if it was I'd still do it...I should be allowed legal backups of my games, for MY use. There's a difference there between distributing these backups and making them for my own use.

I'm glad I have a means to do this for my PSX, GBA, SegaCD (I paid more than I was expecting for Popful Mail on eBay...damned if I'm gonna scratch up that CD), and NDS games....oh yeah, and the one Saturn game I have. :P
