Copyrights on C64 roms?

I’m setting up a website at the moment. As I really like C64 games, I’d like to put some C64 roms on the website.

Can this be done legally? Does somebody know if there’s a list of games is allowed to be freely distributed?

I know that such lists for old PC games exist, so why not for C64 games I thought (just can’t find anything on the net 'bout it).


Slashdot has a nice article about it

The ones to ask would be these guys formally known as the IDSA, now known as ESA. They are the ones that say what is protected and what isn’t.
