    Seriously, emulators and completely and 100% LEGAL. Roms are LEGAL as long as you back them up YOURSELF. Any non-commercial rom you might download from the internet though, is ILLEGAL!
    I found the following quote on wiki.. .. .. ..
    "However, in the U.S. it has been illegal since 1983 for a user to create their own backups of video game ROMs onto other cartridges. This was decided in the court case of Atari v. JS&A. JS&A manufactured a "game backup" device that allowed users to dump their Atari ROMs onto a blank cartridge. JS&A argued that the archival rule allowed for this. The court disagreed, noting that ROM media was not subject to the same volatility as magnetic media (for which the law was created). Thus, not being so relatively vulnerable, ROMs were not applicable under section 17 USC 117(a)(2)."

    Sorry you DON'T own the game when you download it to VC.

    Nintendo specifically states you're paying for a LICENSE TO USE the game- you're not buying a copy of it.

    I didn't examine the agreement too closely but I'm sure it closes the loophole that would allow you to legally play PC Emulators just because you downloaded it on VC....

    PS-

    The VC prices are pretty reasonable, and I like the fact you can erase games off the Wii and download them again later for free.

    Scam it ain't.
