Default Rom Hacking: Do you care if it's illegal?

Nintendon't like you editing their games, as it's reverse engineering and it's stated in manuals that it can be punished as a criminal offence. Do you care for the fact that doing such a thing is illegal? And if not, what would make you think different? And if you did care, what would you say to them if you had the chance to present your case?

Not at all, I love hacking GBC games for their music and graphics. Though, you don't need to hack the games to get these.

As if Nintendo is going to spend time and money tracking down every nobody kid who hacks one of their games. As if they would recover anything from the kid/parents who likely have no money--and haven't been making any from the hacked game. As if Nintendo would do their image any good cracking down on and intimidating their fan base this way. As if!

I don't really care, I don't see what harm there really is in what I or others do here.

I think that even if it's illegal, it brings attention to Pokemon and they can't find all of us and punish us! We hack because we love pokemon. That is a good thing!

Hmm, why should it be illegal in the first place? I mean we are using it in emulators correct? No Hacking Group will form a major International Hack-Selling Association whatsoever. We are not going to get money out of this anyway, since ROMs are generally free. And yes, Nintendo will most probably not even notice, since tracking us down will cost thousands, and they will have to divert their attention to creating new Pokémon or any other game anyway. Whoever is going to engross in trying to beat FireRed, when there is Black and White, the latest version of Pokémon games. I can't imagine an arrest on hacking Pokémon games.

I agree with all the above statements.
Since those roms are free for DLing in various places on the internet, there isn't much stopping us from getting them either.
I don't care if they don't like our escapades, the fun will continue.

That's rather true. I do dump my own roms from time to time for research, so I don't usually have to resort to downloading all the time.

I don't think reverse engineering is illegal. If it is, I don't care
Something I know that's illegal is redistributing hacks (the modified ROM instead of the patch), because it's against copyright, but, heh all my music in my computer is illegal or free xD
