both are illegal.
however most people take a moral stance that live consoles should be supported, where as old console do not create profit any more, so no harm will come of it.
of course many developers reuse ideas.
and nintendo is set to gain huge profit by selling old games on the Wii, and in its constant ports of NES and SNES games to the GBA, and further ports of N64 titles to the DS.
are we sure nintendo is as innovative as some like to believe...
of course microsoft ports old titles to the live arcade, and sony is set to re sell classic psone titles, so these titles may become more of an issue with regards to legitimate use

There are also LEGAL roms. DCEmu even has links to them, they're known as "Public Domain" games. Google it. As for iSOs, all of them are illegial (Unless they're your own backups).

really there is no difference.
but people may feel more comfortable getting roms of games for "dead" consoles, knowing that the games no longer get profit, and cant cause damage to sales, as the games are no longer available.

edit: public domain roms are legal, unless they contain stolen IP

its your own decision .
dcemu is legal, and has a strict policy on discussion of such matters.
know the rules, and dont post links, request links, etc for roms or any illegal files.
