This files are banned in some parts of the world. However, they aren't in Austria, where this server is. All of them are freely distributable. Some of them are (allegedly) a violation of the US Digital Millenium Copyright Act but there is no such law in Europa. Also, reverse engineering (finding out how a program works) for interoperability is legal in Austria and most of Europe.

Diese Dateien werden in einigen Ländern verfolgt. Aber nicht in Österreich, wo dieser Server steht. Alle dürfen frei vervielfältigt werden. Einige verletzen angeblich das Digital Millenium Copyright Act in den USA, aber in Europa gibt es (noch) keine solchen Gesetze. "Reverse engineering" (herausfinden, wie ein Programm funktioniert) ist in Österreich und vermutlich in ganz Europa legal.
