    After doing lots of research, I've concluded the chances are about 1 in 5.

    If you get caught, I assume the worst they can do is a fine and/or prison time. I know that the maximum monetary fine for one downloaded song is $5000, so I don't think we're talking having to pay the cost of the game if caught.

    THe chances of being caught are quite slim. The chances of being taken to court is even slimer. If your worried about it, just don't do it. It's as simple as that.

    they won't even look into prosecuting unless you're offering HUndreds and HUNDREDS of ROMS for distribution freely over the web, or unless it becomes as big of an issue as music downloading has become. Most Roms available are for systems that are 2-3 generations old and usually, by the time they're made widely available, are not even primary products or items they're reciving revenue off of. They dont make those games anymore, if you buy them, it's froma re-seller, so no money exchanged goes to the developers or creators anyways.

    However, now that older games are being made available through digital donwloads on the Wii and 360, they might take a closer look, but the fact still remains you cant get those games on the systems from your computer without HEAVY modding. the problem isn't widespread enough for the major publishers to worry about.

    SOny, Nintendo, and Square enix have better thigns to do than worry about the people playing PS1 and GBA games on their ipods.
