There is a term, “abandonware,” which refers to software (especially games) that are available as free downloads on the internet because the publisher has gone out of business. These are generally old games which are very difficult to get and cannot be bought in stores. Is abandonware legal? Also, supposing the publisher has gone out of business, how do I make sure someone else doesn’t have the rights to this software?
A bit of a technical question, but I would appreciate any input! Thanks
