http://www.iderweb.org/wpscripts/wp.asp : Reebok's arrangement with the NFL Player's Association, which grants the apparel partner a "group license," expired on March 1. That license now provides Nike the right to use players' names on football related products. Nike also has a deal with Tebow himself, which grants the company the "exclusive right to use Tebow's name in connection withathletic and casual apparel." Reebok has permission from neither the league nor Tebow, which means that it might soon be paying for its attempt to capitalize on Tebow's move..

Been reading about commercial games being re-released for free and this is what I have learned:
Some commercial games that have been re-released for free are only licensed to be done from certain sites or under certain conditions(i.e. bundling of Ads &/or spyware or "limited time"). Some have the license & code of the engine "open sourced", but don't change the license of the game data/content In order to allow their game be compatible with new or different systems, but still keep the rights to the game.And even if both engine and game data are released freely doesn't mean you can just make it available as some "open source" licenses have restrictions about commercial use or their being packaged with non-free software.
Also, if the rights to the title are in question (such as owned by defunct company) or the rights owner either cannot be found or will not cooperate, that will kill any chance of a release.
Ideally, you would want a game that has had it's game data released in a non-commercially restricted open source licence (i.e. GPL) by the current verifiable rights holder, has had the work done so that it's playable on modern systems (either thru reimplementation or emulation), and is a game of good quality so as to provide value to your service.
Getting all those to happen requires a lot of resources,effort,cooperation, and luck. Below is a good place to start for possible titles and different licenses.

@Gaerzi: While it is true that the status "Abandonware" gives no one (also not gog) the legal right for re-distribution, abandonware is not classified by a assumed legitimation for re-distribution. Wikipedia gives a definition, where "abandonware" is classified by the non-availability and missing support by the original developer, as cultural problem. And by that definition gog can bring some games out of the abandonware status, after finding and talking with the IP holders.

No game is "officially abandonware" since abandonware is not a legal concept. (Closest would be "orphaned work", for when the right holder does not exist anymore; or public domain, which will not concern video games for a long while since copyright lasts for 70 years after author's death, 95 years after publication, or 120 years after creation, whichever comes first. (The "author's death" close does not apply when the rights are owned by a company rather than a person, by the way.) This means that, for example, "E.T. the Extraterrestrial", created for the Atari 2600 in 1986, will be public domain in... year 2077. It's very probable that most of us will be dead before the first PC games fall in the public domain. Provided there aren't any further copyright length extensions in between due to lobbying (cf. Mickey Mouse/Sonny Bono Act). Of course, it is possible (and it has happened) that a rightholder may decide to put a game in the public domain before terms expiration. And without going up to public domain, it's also possible that they allow free downloads and even in some cases free redistribution. But that doesn't make it abandonware, just freeware.

Abandonware is piracy. Whether you like it or not, that's irrelevant. GOG cannot add abandonware without the copyright holder's permission. Saying "This game is old, so it should be free!" is wishful thinking, nothing more. I mean, take music for example. It's still illegal to download Johnny B. Goode without paying, even though the freaking song is over 50 years old!

I am all for adding more abandonware to GOG. In fact, I just sent the site an email on this very topic. That being said, I am 100% against GOG charging money for abandonware. Any title that is officially abandonware should be free, period. Charging people for a game that is legally free is not an approach for this website that I approve of whatsoever. I love GOG and I want GOG to succeed, but not if they are going to take advantage of gamers like that. In my opinion, GOG should be doing everything in its power to get more free games on this site and Abandonware is the perect solution. A well stocked free games section could be a major draw for GOG.

Speaking of limited 'free' giveaways, one example was Sierra back in the 90's gave out the disk version of Betrayal of Kronder, on their website. You could download it for free (this was to advertise the release of either Betrayal at Antara, or Return to Kronder), but the fine print was you couldn't redistribute it further.

So once Sierra took down the promotional, there wasn't a legal way to obtain the game. It's back to being sold again!

Mystery House was placed on public domain, and you read the whole facts behind it within some of the cracked copies that were made by other companies. For example the copy that was included in Roberta Williams collection was distributed by a third party other than Sierra, and has the Public Domain information included in one of its files.

"
The Public Domain Exchange
2074c Walsh Ave.
Santa Clara, CA 95050
(408) 496-0624

From a great moment in history: Mystery House, the first graphic adventure, was created in 1980 by Sierra On-Line founders Ken and Roberta Williams, and released into the public domain in 1987 to celebrate Sierra's 7th anniversary.

We encourage you to copy this game, for yourself or to share. If you have enjoyed it you may send a $5 donation to Ken and Roberta's favorite Charity,


Sierra Historic Sites Association,
P.O. Box 451.
Oakhurst CA 93644


Note: because it is now free, Sierra's gift to you, we can no longer take calls on this game. If you need help. We suggest you contact your local Apple users group to talk with others who may have played it."

Games given out by the publishers are 'freeware' or released into the 'public domain' by the publishers (see Beneath a Steel Sky or Mystery House). However some companies have limited free release, as in you can get the game for free from specific sites, but you cannot pass the game onto other people or upload the game to other sites.

There is no such thing as 'abandoneware'. It is not a legal term. If distribution occurs it is still breaking copyright laws.

@Gaerzi: Abandonware in its essence is software which was abandoned by its publisher/developer, therefore a kind of orphaned work, completely legal concept. Abandonware which is redistributed by third parties is a form of "warez", only this form of abandonware is illegal. The concept of "abandonware" is not necessarily connect with the concept of "warez", that's my point. E.g. the preservation of abandware is now legal.

"abandonware" is not "orphaned works". I go on abandonware sites, I see titles such as Doom on them. Despite the developer and publisher still being alive and well, and the game still being sold on the developer's site as well as on a popular digital distribution platform, and still getting officially ported to new platforms (PS3 and XBLA as part of that "BFG Edition" thing). But it's an old game and it's tiny and quickly downloaded and it doesn't have any sort of DRM, which means that it's abandonware! Weeeeee! Yeah no. This is why abandonware is not a legal concept. Orphaned works sure is; but most of abandonware is not orphaned works. It's just warez that you can get away with.

Abandonware is a completely legal concept, it is the software variant of a "orphaned work". Also, abandonware is in general a challenge to our software ecosystem ( http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/134641/where_games_go_to_sleep_the_game_.php ).

No no no no no! If I have a reason for disliking Gog is that they take games that were free because they belonged to huge money grubbing company that forgot about them, and make deals with those companies to make those games that were free yesterday to cost 6 or 10 bucks.
If it is a game that didn't work with Dosbox and Gog did something to bring it back to life I'll be all for it. What I don't like is being made a pirate because a company like Hasbro wants to make a few more bucks off a 20 year old game.

Yes twice! The greatest thing about GoG is that I dont have worry about setting up DoS box, or searching around shady websites and then figuring out how to run things. AT the end of the day I just want to pay my $5 bucks, install something and let the hours drift away.

:) I am very lazy after all.

More abandonware that runs on my new machine!!!

there are games that are already free. I see almost no point in that. Abandonware mostly sucks (except rare exceptions like seven kingdom). I just want they continue to add GOOD OLD games XD. I'd like to try TES II, is that really true that it has been removed from GOG? why?

The Ancient art of war Series was great. Namely in Ancient art of war in the skies.

@JasonRain: GOG already released those, and not for free.

Sango Fighter is a freeware available from http://www.sangofighter.com/download.htm and it would be nice if it were on GOG. The Super Fighter Team folk would probably be happy to see it over here; and the nostalgic of the shareware/BBS era would probably recognize that name.

I would like it if they add Both of the now free Elder Scrolls (TES Arena, TES II Daggerfall) games as well as both the free GTAs (GTA I, GTA II). Would be awesome. :)
