I say Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony let users download Ouya games in retaliation.

Emulation is not piracy.
Playing roms without owning them is piracy.

Emulation is piracy, just depends on the company if they allow you to use their ROMS without fear of legal action.

A good example is Amstrad (owner of the Sinclair Spectrum brand) they fully endorse the release/use of the Spectrum ROM kernal for use with emulators.. now games are a different matter but many old software houses have released many full version games into the public domain.

One of my fav programmers from the day, Jeff Minter has pretty much released all of his old 8 bit games - you can download them from his website.

But honestly, who really cares.. don't think anyone is gonna bust down your door cause you happen to be playing some old speccy/c64/genesis/snes/nes games.. just enjoy the memories.

Play On..
