==Availability of submissions==
As of 2011, all previous competition entries are archived at the [[wikipedia:World of Spectrum|World of Spectrum]] FTP site <ref></ref> and are ordinarily considered freely distributable, assuming that permission has been granted.<ref>{{cite web|url=[|title=ARCHIVE - COPYRIGHTS AND DISTRIBUTION PERMISSIONS|publisher=[[World of Spectrum]]|first=Martijn|last=van der Heide|date=2003-03-25|quote=Retro-gaming - emulating original arcade machines and later consoles and other gaming machines - has gained increasing interest by fans.}}</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">{{cite web|url=|title=About The Competition|year=2006|accessdate=2011-05-05|first=Matt|last=Rudge|quote=Basically, the idea is to make a really crap game. It has to be originally crap (or crappily original), not just unplayable and bug-filled.}}</ref> whereas the 2008 and 2009 rules simply stated that all authors agree to free distribution of their submissions.<ref>{{cite web|url=|title=CSSCGC 2008 Rules|publisher=Digital Prawn|date=2008-12-09|accessdate=2011-05-05|quote=All entries must be crap games that run on Sinclair computers i.e. the Sinclair Spectrum 16K/48K/128K.}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=|title=the CSSCGC rules|first=Alistair|last=Cree|date=2009-01-01|accessdate=2011-05-05|quote=Rule Number 1:
