"the rights holders are unlikely to still be making (or expecting) any profit off of the titles"

I expect the way they look at it is this is a commercial product using their games as a selling point and therefore they are entitled to a share of the profits. Especially if they have a contract or a letter of understanding on that point. Is that unreasonable?

Perhaps their attitude is more laid back for emulators and such like where it's more of a hobbiest / nostalgia thing with no profit motive.
