Abandonware is defined as any software that is not being sold or supported by the company that produced it, nor by any other company. When a certain piece of abandonware is later found to be sold or supported by a company (for instance in a re-release or a compilation), then it ceases to be abandonware. The term may also apply to hardware that matches this description.
