Frequently Asked Questions - Legal aspect

NintAndBox is a personal initiative by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts.

This site offers old video game boxes that are more than 20 years old.
Copyrights obviously don't belongs to NintAndBox, but to any person who ever worked on these resources.
Since the site beginning, I still don't have received messages to remove boxes or tho close the site.

After some years, these games are no more commercialy used (at least through initial cartridge shape). It is what we usually call "abandonware".
Since NintAndBox don't offer games, but only what we could consider as marketing packaging, we think that their download would be allowed. In any case one must at least own the original cartridge to make the box, either it would be totaly useless. 

To give some credit to our project, I collect support testimonials from people in the industry I like, and for whom the opinion counts. You can see all of them in the testimonials page.

Very hard to answer such question, because I had the idea to create this site after I saw Game & Watch reproduction boxes sold on eBay :)
Let's say that if it comes from NintAndBox, we are obviously against because the seller uses our work to earn money. It is also for this reason that all custom boxes seen on the forum are not shared anymore. Regarding copyright, the seller assumes alone all legal counterfeit risk ;)
If you find reproductions for sale all over the Internet, and these reproductions seem to come from this site, please report them both on the selling site, and here on the forum.

No, in any case. We (NintAndBox members) spend a huge amount of time to scan, rework and publish files on this site.
It would not be fair to use our work in order to earn money. An exception could be made if you are the actual author of the rework you want to use, but be aware that members from this site won't let you do your business easily.
Furthermore, site's spirit is not to earn money, and users are requested to agree. We share the same passion first of all!
