Me and my friend had a discussion, we were talking about abandonware and he said that it's not legal to download anything from here and elsewhere without owning an original copy of the software. Is this true?

If you want to be 100% legal and sure you don't do anything slightly illegal then yes, it's true. If you want to follow the corporations then you need to buy everything in shiny new boxes, or forget it ever existed as most old titles can't be found in a store. Even buying most software on eBay may be illegal as their licenses forbid second hand resale etc...
Not a fun world to live in, but hey, haven't you ever walked across the street when there was a red light? .

Never in my life. Really.
