Snipped from random abandonware page....
According to U.S. Law and International Treaties, a copyright belongs to the author of a software product for 70 years beyond the life of the author or 95 years after the copyright date if the work is done by a corporation or anonymous source.


Well... yes you're right from the legal point of view.
But today, after 10 years from releasing Star Control 2 you need a group of programers that will port the game so you can play it. Can you imagine what would be needed after 70 years from Fred's and Paul's death?

I sure can: nothing.
It would be impossible

I know a place, the question is, should I post it? I don't know if doing so would get the project in trouble.

This thread is locked because it's way off topic and indeed, posting DL links of illegal stuff could get us into trouble.
