QuestionROM files in an article? Yay/Nay? Pin

I'm not really sure where should I post this question, so I came here.

I'm writing an article, but the project requires ROM files of a legacy system in order to run. Now I don't think these files are 100% legal to distribute freely, so what do you think is the best course of actions? Should I provide link to external location where these can be downloaded or include it with source code/executables anyways?

Edit:

It's 30 years old firmware from a company that does not exist for the last 20 years.
