Their Amiga offerings range between $9.95US (Value Edition) and $49.95US (Premium Edition). Honestly, it's well worth the price if you are interested in running an Amiga emulation. As far as ROMs go, the Value Edition only includes the 1.3 ROM, but this is what 95% of the games out there require. If you're after Apps (such as the excellent Deluxe Paint: One of the easiest - and still powerful - to use paint programs ever), then you'll probably need at least version 2.04.

Good luck!

If you're thinking of doing a google search for the roms, be warned that it is sometimes difficult to find them (other times, not...).

WinUAE comes with ROMs, doesn't it? It did when I downloaded it (yes, from the legit site).

Yes, that is correct but i think there is some kind of Legal time, for Copyright registration, and i think that time for amiga has expired,
1984-> 2004 = 20 Years, meaning its AbandonedWare only for the first versions.
But im not sure of this.

No. Amiga ROM's are still copyright protected and can still be licenced.
Copyright don't have to be registered. If you create something you automaticly have the copyright. You even don't have to write "Copyright by X" to it. You allways have the copyright.

No, and it never came.
If you have a package downloaded with the ROM's, than it's not from the official website.

I got it from www.winuae.net some time back. What else can I say?

Maybe you remember wrong. They never had the ROM's included and there is a section in the readme telling you to get the ROM's from another place or dump them.

I believe that copyright holds in effect for software is about 70 years. There is a heck of a long way to go before the amiga can be classed as public domain.

Nope. I've only ever used that site to get the app (it's the only place I know). I remember downloading it and seeing the ROMs inside and thinking maybe they were licensed to use them now. So if that's not the case, then I consider myself lucky to get a distro which did have them at the time. Whenever I unzip the distro to a blank folder, the ROMs are in there, ready to go, and I can launch the Amiga to the boot-screen (hand holding the floppy).

I can tell from your response that you obviously don't believe me, but them's the facts. I have no reason to lie to you. It's possible they made a mistake with a distro at some point -- the project was taken over by a new maintainer some time back. Maybe the distro I got was from the old maintainer.
