public domain. Perhaps raise the money to do it by selling "shares" of
ownership in the rights to C= enthusiasts. That way, emulators can use
original C= ROM code without copyright infringement, and "Build Your Own
Commie 64" kits could be a possibility. Since the rights would be
purchased by the computing community, they'd belong to the computing

        I don't necessarily have a problem with this. If this ever comes to pass (a
slim chance at best), we can make provisions for emulator licenses.

for-proffit mode. Except maybe just bragging rights...<<

        Mmmmm. What's wrong with a little bragging?? <g>
