I think it just means they're breaking copyright laws instead of you. Maybe. Perhaps they're a recognised library and therefore exempt?

It's an interesting situation because until recently ROM sites were routinely being smacked with DMCA takedowns, the ones which survive are at providers who ignore notices or are based overseas. The process of releasing new ROMs is still pretty clandestine in itself.
