I both sell and trade ROMs, as the OP is aware. There are so many people 
asking questions and looking for service help that I don't feel bad at 
all about charging. Not over-charging of course. Every once in a while 
someone takes a jab at me for having the gall to sell something that I 
didn't originally create, but more often are the thankful synth owners 
happy to get their gear up and running again. And I always encourage 
people to get their own programmers even though it means investing time 
in acquiring the blanks, getting an eraser, making sure the ROMs meet 
the original specs for speed and word format, etc.
