I would buy it if it can be bought but unfortunately it isn't. In my opinion I think that the best motivation for the sleepy sellers who does not care to sell their software products for some reason is to pirate it. Those who has it should put it online for free downloading. That's the only way to get the producers to reply and say something about it. If they don't want it pirated then they should sell it. If they don't mind or no longer care then they should say so or don't object it being pirated or maybe they remember that they forget to tell the community that they wanted to make it free but they forget to do so. Maybe they put version 2 online too.
What I want to say is:
If you cannot buy it then you havethe full right to have it other ways and producers cannot complain about it in Court of Law.

I think it is safe to say Compass can be copied without fear of prosecution. I consider it abandonware, personally I don’t use this one but many other software on MSX has the same status. I would almost go so far that even recent software which sold out and no new batches are planned fall under this category. Personally I hope many of those games would be made available in digital release at such point (preferably at the start of sale even). I don’t want to collect boxes and cartridges or floppy disks (I made an exception for Konami only) and I don’t want to buy/rip/resell either.
