Sim City, PoP and Street Fighter are all owned by publishers nowadays. The games themselves are often developed by studios that no longer exist, and that makes the question of ownership difficult.
A nice read on the subject can be found here: http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/pc/2009/0...sentials/1

Nice read, didn't know there was such an ambiguity with abandonware. Since it is on archive.org and it is a legit organization I think any issues with content providers regarding any of the titles they have on the website will be their problem first. They'll remove it and this plugin can't list them. This simple plugin doesn't use any hack to download the media, I thought it was necessary at first but found out they have an api where they list all the files/metadata.
In my opinion if this is not published on the official repository nor distributed by kodi we shouldn't have any issue at all. There is however an archive.org video plugin in the repository, I assume most of the videos belonging to studios that no longer exist will fall in the same category, am I right?
If there is any concern, some moderator will most likely trash the post. For me, there's no problem with doing it at all Smile
