Electronic Distribution Of Software, or EDOS, was a bit of an unusual artifact in the UK in the early 1990s. A sort of game jukebox sat in game stores, and customers would select the game they wanted to purchase. It would then be copied from a master CD onto floppy disks, on demand, and delivered immediately to the customer, along with a custom inlay for the game. Several hundred games were available in this form for various platforms, with the permissions of the publishers, who then got a portion of the sale price. Thus although the disks appear 'pirated', these are actually the originals.
