you can use it with legal roms you've purchased through starroms.

its a technical referenece to the inner workings of various arcade machines

its a historical document detailing what was released when, on what hardware, and by who.

its a useful repair resource, the functions of each rom can be identified from the source and aid in tracking down problems, likewise ram failures can be simulated with simple modifications.

it can be used to identify roms read from unknown, non-working boards and thus what the board should be, and if its worth spending time fixing.

It can be a reference, for example when purchasing boards, comparing the rom names in Mame with those shown on images of the board to determine the verison of it.

MAME has been used for all these things, look beyond the games.
