Quote from Tom, VPinmame Dev, in another thread:

"So, here is the reason why the version will expire:

"PinMAME/VPinMAME is able to emulate machines which are still beeing produced and/or selled by active manufactures or the roms are copyrighted by someone and it's not legal to emulated them. Nobody knows. So, if all goes worse, and any of these (or should I say the only one) manufactures or copyright holders (there are more, MS is one of them I think) go crazy and start to send out there laywers, the version will expire and we can produce another version, which won't support the affected games anymore."
