Well, the thing is that Bazix seems to be quite sellective when it comes down to writing emails to websites/magazines/whatever when it comes down to linking to "warez". Fact is, when it comes down to it, even MSX.ORG links to warez on it frontpage once in a while:

http://www.msx.org/blueMSX-2.6.newspost3889.html

Fact is that BlueMSX contains the MSX System ROMS, this means that MSX.ORG is placing links to sites containing warez on it's frontpage. Since MSX.ORG and Bazix are 2 completely separate organisations, I do expect that BAZIX will undertake action towards MSX.ORG in this matter. I doubt MSXA will accept the faxt that such an important MSX Website links towards the copyrighted MSX-ROMS.

I guess that's why it might be better if they just didn't take action.

However, I get the idea Bazix really doesn't like MSX Mbox in particular. It might be because this emulator seems seems to have quite the following (also outside the MSX community perhaps), and has readily included games, so that might be the primary reason. All the other methods involve more hassle.

Simply put, it breaks most copyrights at once and its ease of use provide an easy portal to piracy. If it then gets attention in Dutch media too... tell you what, if I ran Bazix, I might be doing the same. It's all a matter of in which position you are.

More clearly: What's a lot like Woomb, but freely downloadable with 1300 games pre-installed?

(p.s. I'd like to stress that I think a lot higher of Woomb than that sentence might indicate)

AFAIK, excluding openMSX all MSX emulators include the BIOS ROMs. tfh: I hope you're not hinting that Bazix should take action against all of those, that would cause a riot Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

@Jonamaan,
I think Bazix should make very clear what it's position is, and handle accordingly. But you can't be as sellective as they have been up till now. I would prefer that they stop they actions as they are doing now but if they don't: fine by me, but then don't be selective and take action against all widely known "offenders", which includes MSX.ORG as well.

Dunno, they primarily took action against MSX MBox IIRC ... and I think that's simply because it's the biggest threat to Woomb.... I really can't blame that. Also, in the cases of MSX M-Box it's not just the bios roms but also the games.... I don't think they're being THAT selective.
