Hello??? You're including the roms with the emulator, right? What Aaron just pointed out was there is no "grey" area in that and he's right. You can legally distribute your emulator since it is your work, but if you aren't the legal copyright owner of the romfiles, then distributing the roms with it is definitely illegal. You might not necessarily get caught, but don't kid yourself.
