To take a concrete example, I'm pretty sure there are at least a few 100%
free games/demoes for the SNES out there (written by the same people who
did translation work on a original japanese games) but I'm also sure
distribution of any snes emulator even with bundled free roms would invite
instant litigation (even if everyone knew it was baseless, just to harass
console emulators distributors and make sure no one wants to do it)
