Well, I found them freely available, and it seems Softdisk no longer exists. I googled to see if Carmack had a site - my first idea was to email him, to see if he was interested in obtaining them, for nostalgia/if he no longer had copies.

"Freely available" and "Legally free to download" aren't synonymous.

But hey, I'm in no position to assume the role of warez police.

Well, if anyone owns the copyright, its probably Bayou Internet - http://www.bayou.com/

According to Wikipedia, Softdisk switched to being an ISP in '95, abandoning the software part of their business. They ran downloadstore.com which is now owned and run by Flat Rock Software, that used to resell only Softdisk's Screen Saver Studio. (I checked. The site is now full of broken links, and the search function doesn't work.)

Bayou Internet took over their ISP operations in '06.

So who's to say who owns the copyright? I doubt Bayou Internet, if they have the rights, would care much.

Don't post or ask links to warez or abandonware etc etc on these forums. Read the FAQ. Links removed.

Good luck in that endeavor! We'll want a proof, though.

What part wasn't clear to you? No warez or "grey area" downloads here. It's a RULE, stick to it.
