    Roms are legal if you rip them yourselves and don't upload them on the internet.

    You can have awesome roms on your DS with the Max Media Dock, but when I get one I will only use it for movies.

    No, if you own the game, it's legal to own the ROM.

    I should point out now that whether you can copy and use a ROM is not always only dependant on whether you own a game or not. Some newer games have license agreements which override simple copyright regulations. Typically, newer software includes a card listing all the things a user agrees to by opening the software or installing it. Under current copyright law, you can make a copy of a game. But a license can prevent even this. That's not to say that all or even most do: Read your license agreements carefully, just like they say you should.
    So, neither of us are correct and incorrect, As this extract of an article says, it is legal to own a copy of a ROM if you own it but in some license agreements in games, it could be illegal.
    But shadow, if you download a ROM, and if you get caught, you won't have proof that you owned the game (as you lost it).

    lol, that made me chuckle

    Let's say a mod looks at your IP address, collects proof of illegal ROM owning from wiichat and hands it over to the police, they can find out where you live.

    But never mind, that will never happen

    Yeah who can honestly say they've never illegally downloaded music?
