There is no legal precedent for ripping and downloading ROMs for games you own, though an argument could be made for fair use. Unfortunately, we discovered that no definitive answer truly exists, since these arguments have yet to be tested in court. But we can at least bust some myths that are floating around out there. There are exceptions, of course, such as the BIOS files that are required by certain emulators to play games.

In the United States, copyright protects works for 75 years, meaning no major console titles will be public domain for decades. But is there a legal defense? Possibly, if you already own a Super Mario World cartridge. Then, according to Bambauer, you might be covered by fair use. He says he could imagine a few possible defensible scenarios. You can see where this gets complicated. A common argument online is that extracting a ROM from a cartridge you own is perfectly legal, but downloading ROMs from the web is a crime.

So is ripping a ROM you own any different than downloading one? Now, Bambauer could imagine constructing an argument about how one is different than the other, and he admits the optics are different.

This fair use argument is potentially very wide reaching, but there are limits. Consider the entertainment industry. For ROMs it largely works the same way, which is why sites that share games are so frequently shut down.
