for "ROMs" as in "software" the usual copyright rules apply - ie its protected 
for (at least) 70 years until after the death of the author.

as for who owns the rights these days, thats a very difficult question 
probably noone can definately answer these days. for a bunch of them "cloanto" 
claims it does (look them up on US copyright office). you'll also find similar 
claims made by "amiga inc." and "hyperion" (sometimes related to the same 
software, and in the same time span....)

the transfer of a brand name however usually does not involve the transfer of 
any further rights, its a seperate thing. afaik none of the recent "commodore" 
reincarnations owned any such rights.


Politicians are like diapers. They both need changing regularly and for the 
same reason.
