    Uhhh No. You own the game. But not a COPY of the game.

    Hahah.... no. I sold off my gameboy color and my DS is broken so I can't play any of the GBA or GBC games I have, but I still have the copies of the games.
    I should sell those too.
    Shame most of 'em are broken.
    EDIT: Why would it matter anyway? Nintendo's got my money for the games. They aren't factory producing the GBC ones any more, too.

    Because they still have the rights and are still selling those games. Wii Virtual Console along with an upcoming Nintendo DS store with the retro games.

    That's true. Also Nintendo DS store, awesome! But aren't I allowed a second copy?
    WAIT A MINUTE.
    I JUST FOUND THIS:
    Can I Download a Nintendo ROM from the Internet if I Already Own the Authentic Game?

    There is a good deal of misinformation on the Internet regarding the backup/archival copy exception. It is not a "second copy" rule and is often mistakenly cited for the proposition that if you have one lawful copy of a copyrighted work, you are entitled to have a second copy of the copyrighted work even if that second copy is an infringing copy. The backup/archival copy exception is a very narrow limitation relating to a copy being made by the rightful owner of an authentic game to ensure he or she has one in the event of damage or destruction of the authentic. Therefore, whether you have an authentic game or not, or whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet.

    It's from the nintendo legal page.
    Crud.
    I blame internet misinformation.
