Why don’t you distribute ROM files with your cabinets?

The license for MAME specifically states “Distribution of MAME on the same physical medium as illegal copies of ROM images is strictly forbidden. You are not allowed to distribute MAME in any form if you sell, advertise, or publicize illegal CD-ROMs or other media containing ROM images. This restriction applies even if you don’t make money, directly or indirectly, from those activities. You are allowed to make ROMs and MAME available for download on the same website, but only if you warn users about the ROMs’s copyright status, and make it clear that users must not download ROMs unless they are legally entitled to do so.” Also I am not legally authorized to distribute the ROM images so I of course DO NOT.
