/me kinda wonders who sent them an e-mail about the "copyrighted material" in this archive.
So Bazix I guess. Who else would do it? Its a dutch magazine and Bazix is the only entity that would bother. Sad but understandable.

As far as I know, the original companies have these copyrights. Bazix is merely a representive of MSXA eh. MSXA represents those companies, Bazix represents MSXA outside JP. It's not just about games currently in Woomb, but also about games TO BE in Woomb in the future. Whether you like it or not, MSX is not as dead as C64 (heard the latest news? Commodore is now a company to assemble game-oriented PC's), a name which is currently far from related to the original system. So, due to MSX's undeadness, companies and their games aren't dead either.

And this all is just logical thinking.

here's what's written on bazix.nl

As the official representative of the Japanese company MSX Association, Bazix takes care of all requests related to the trademarks and copyrights of the legendary MSX computer system for the non-Japanese market.

See: Bazix = MSXA. A few looser-f**kheads want to make you believe MRC = Bazix, but well, that discussion is an old one already, and as impotent as it can be.

Also from bazix.nl

Bazix licenses software from its original publishers for distribution on WOOMB.

Difficult to understand isn't it?

If an art gallery has my exclusive license to showcase my oilpaintings in their gallery, and someone standing on the town square is projecting images of my same paintings on a bigscreen, for free, wouldn't you think it makes sense that this art gallery will protest?

And all this is NOT inside info, it's just reading their website.

It would be better to read up things first before you start screaming and yelling around.

Still... it is an emulator, which uses the MSX Systems ROMs, which MSX Ass. has the copyright. So they had all the rights needed to ask the link to be taken down, like it or not.

@Wolf,

If that is realy the case, Bazix should really get some balls and really take action. And then not towards an article like this, but you know where I mean, but Bazix doesn't have the balls for that, because they know they can close their "business" if they do that. If Bazis is really THAT serious, they shouldn't be so selective.

really? that's kind of a shame.. I liked the C64DTV too.

hmm.. I don't think it's really needed that they take action. Most people who like retro games, or retro game services, are well aware of the less legit alternatives. There's certain people who will simply never buy because they can get it for free (and even if they lose one source, they'll often find another), and there are people who will buy something because they think it deserves their money. That applies to all software, not just MSX.
