Craig,

>From a hardware point you are correct and also correct if you are using the original BIOS. Games however fall under separate copyright laws and cannot be copied/emulated. Why they are released as patches that have to be compiled by the person who downloaded it. 

The original ROM Chips are/were the only authorized way to play the game.

I'm assuming that if you build this, you obtained the actual Sega
Genisys hardware
(and associated roms) through legal means.  No emulator involved.
