RetroPie is a system to install/configure emulators on an existing OS – The RetroPie Setup Script is released under the GPL.
The image we provide is Raspbian Lite with RetroPie pre-installed. Much of the software included in the RetroPie image have non-commercial licences. Because of this selling a pre-installed RetroPie image is not legal – this includes “giving away” a pre-installed RetroPie with your commercial product. Including copyrighted games with RetroPie is also not allowed.
If you are selling hardware that supports RetroPie you should provide a link to our site for your customers rather than including a RetroPie image with your product.
RetroPie does not ship with any copyrighted ROMs or games and does not condone illegal activity.
We do not use email for support – please use the RetroPie Forum for getting help, or discussing development.
For other concerns (don’t email us about advertising / sponsored posts – you will be ignored) please email us at retropieproject [at] gmail.com.
