Oh please, litigation is extremely expensive and companies don't sue over
something unless it has real commercial value.  Anyone who thinks the
Atari 7800 or its software has remaining commercial value is seriously
delusional.  The only people on the planet who still care about the 7800
are on this list, and we love it as our hobby.

I say post your new demos.  The 7800 owners on the list will enjoy them,
and nobody's going to sue you.
