==Availability of submissions==
As of 2011Previously, all previous competition entries are were archived at the [[wikipedia:World of Spectrum|World of Spectrum]] FTP site <ref>ftp://ftp.worldofspectrum.org/pub/sinclair/csscgc/</ref> . Although since the discontinuation of that FTP server, entries up to the year 2012 are available via the [http://www.worldofspectrum.org/pub/sinclair/csscgc/ World of Spectrum website] and [https://wos.meulie.net/pub/sinclair/csscgc/ the wos.meulie.net mirror]. The CSSCGC archives are ordinarily considered freely distributable, assuming that permission has been granted.<ref>[http://www.worldofspectrum.org/permits/ ARCHIVE - COPYRIGHTS AND DISTRIBUTION PERMISSIONS]</ref> Entries up to and including CSSCGC 2008 are also organised and catalogued at Unsatisfactory Software's 'Crap Game Finder' website.<ref name="unsat" /> However, technically the copyright status of submissions can vary. For example the 2006 competition rules stated that all games are copyright their respective authors <ref name="cgc2006about">[http://www.mattrudge.net/cgc2006/about.html About The Competition]</ref> whereas the 2008 and 2009 rules simply stated that all authors agree to free distribution of their submissions.<ref>[http://reptonix.awardspace.co.uk/sinclair/csscgc2008/#rules CSSCGC 2008 Rules]</ref><ref>[http://zxnet.co.uk/spectrum/cgc/rules.html the CSSCGC rules]</ref> In at least one case, an author has withdrawn a submission and rescinded distribution permission on it.<ref>http://groups.google.co.uk/group/comp.sys.sinclair/msg/2737cd792f80b66c</ref>
