Google Over the weekend, Yong Zhang (yongzh), developer of emulators for old gaming systems on Android, has seen his developer revoked and all applications removed from the Android Market. While locally installed applications remain on user's device this time, they obviously cannot be updated or reinstalled by users who have legally purchased them. No warning or explanation has been sent, but the app and account removal is most likely the result of a complaint from one of the companies who own the right to those systems, as a complaint from Sega last month resulted in a couple of emulators getting removed already.

It is a good opportunity.
Some companies do a great job making legal emulated games on mobile devices, such as the R-TYPE iPhone port.

Check out DotEmu (http://www.dotemu.com) for instance if you don't know them, they do port a lot of legal emulated games on iOS.
