Are ROM files legal to download?


We came across this answer a very long time ago, but a lot of people are still searching for it. The answer is Yes! ROM files are legal to download and use, but only if you own the original “hard” copy of the game. For example, if you want to play a NES game such as Super Mario Brothers, than you should own the original cartridge. There is no software restriction regarding the emulator, but it’s a legal fact.
