No, abandonware is still illegal to download.
Well the site of which i found downloading for abandonware said that the games on the site are legal for download as long as they are not given away with the attempt to gain a payment. And also the componeys of abandonware generally have gone bankrupt etc. and no longer will gain profit :S
However i do have a leget copy of UFO as i brought it many years ago.
I assumed the ufo game would be free to distribute now anywho. I was just wondering
just noticed that at the bottom of http://en.wikipedia....iki/Abandonware
it had under legal sites for downloading them as Some sites Which i noticed did have UFO games?
Also i think microprose went out of business/bankrupt and abandonwarez from those componys is no longer defended as theres no one to defend them unless rights are sold/given to another company
