no, it's quite clearly a hack.

Taito may have licensed them to distribute their games, they didn't license them to hack them or bootleg them. Their puzznic is clearly a hack to remove the copy protection, this is also clearly a hack. I honestly doubt their claims of legality entirely. Companies were licensed to import and distribute the european versions of Taito games, in official unmodified form. This company have made various cheap graphic/text/protection hacks to them.
