Please moderators delete this thread, this guy is asking for warez, and it is absolutley bad for the caps project, especially because one german distributor allready said that he will shut down caps, because they are trading those caps images.

Excuse me?

Who is "they" that are trading CAPS images? CAPS themselves don't send out the stuff, the one who dumps the originals has the choice whether they do or don't.

Also, most of this stuff isn't available for sale and the software houses don't exist any more for the most part.

Boohoo.

CAPS itself cannot be shut down because it is 100% legal. Not that I can possibly understand why anyone would want to do that - "yeah, we only want cracks to be available when copyright runs out" - what a completely stupid attitude.

These "CAPSDI" people probably could/should be shut down though, but they don't have anything to do with the CAPS project.

I was *not* looking for warez.
Most/all of the stuff CAPS collects is abandonware now.
If anyone could "shut down CAPS" by now for piracy, wouldn't you think they would have done it by now? It's been around for a fair while now.
Put away your bat and whistle, they don't fit you.

This "abandonware" Thing is plain stupid. Question, if this is all Abandonware and no Problem, why do you think caps isn`t just releasing the archive? Right, they where down before they can say piracy. And you (if you are the one requeting) are doing more harm to caps then you can imagine.
It might be true that many titles are out of copyright, but there are still many which are not! Take Lucas Arts games for example. They are still releasing their classics from time to time. And there are titles which are still sold, e.g. titles from apc-tcp.

This comment was not about CAPS (I like their work) but about capsdi who is doing harm to the caps project and give a perfect reason, why one Distributor, whose Softwaretitles are on caps, might do everything to shut down caps.

Sure, I released this :) it wasn't a pop at you!

Well, I can certainly see why a distributor might want to shut down CAPSDI, but I still can't see why they would want to shut down CAPS itself... Take ADF's... The illegality is the people distributing them, not the people who made them that *own the games*.

A distributor though? Surely they only care about games that they are currently distributing? This must mean the games are new (sellers of old games don't count IMO), and CAPS only does classics AFAIK. So... well... I am still confused!

Anwyay, maybe they should contact CAPS to raise their concerns directly if they have a problem, assuming they haven't already done so.

It's all warez, no matter how old (well, lifetime+75 years), unless the companies release it themselves, in which case it's freeware. People should spend their time trying to get laws to reflect reality, instead of messing around with stuff like this....CAPS hasn't been busted because collecting is legal, but distributing without permission is not.
