You can't buy this stuff anymore and you certainly can't 'buy' CoCo items anymore except for eBay. Then you are the mercy of being in a middle of a bid war with a fanboy with (0) feedbacks or the auctioneer that thinks he can start his lot deal out at $300 and then lets it camp out in his store forever and a day.
The existence of those websites isn't proof that what they do is legal or ethical. In the FAQ at the-underdogs.info it states that distributing "abandonware" is illegal. The law is the law, and you don't have a right to break it just because it makes you sad.
