The shareware levels are public domain as well. The only thing that's off
limits is the sound effects, which are the property of Bobby Prince, and
he's a very nice guy and will prolly let you do whatever you like w/ 'em
(see http://www.bpmusic.com), and the retail levels, which shouldn't be out
there anyway. :)
