LBA under protection of ESA!

before you delete this link read what's written in there
http://www.abandonia.com/games/149/L...sAdventure.htm

As you can see... LBA has been removed from abandonia becouse it isn't 90 years old, and cos of this it isn't abandonware (thing that we all know). Nice to see this uh?

That's the length of copyright, iirc. Well, 70 years but they've extended it or something.

no, it will become public domain after 90 years (or 70 in europe).

anyway, I've been saying this for the past years when people brought up the "abandonware" thing.

but still, abandonia only removes games distributed by an ESA member, they still violate the copyrights of other games

Its not public domain, but I really dought its 90 years either.

For writen copywrite work its 70, but generaly for things created in a group its *less*, not more.
Its very confusing with electronics though, games certainly last longer then hardware. (I think its legal for anyone to make a "NES" these days, for instance)
