Yes, this is what I remember reading as well. Very unfortunate and sad. There might still be old game collection discs (named DOS classics or something like that) still available from Amazon (etc.). That's where I got my copies, but it was years ago.

I rarely make direct shortcuts to DOS games and instead boot up basic DOSBox and operate from there (with few DOS commands, like cd and dir). It's a bit slower, but allows me to keep my already cluttered screen free of extra icons. Thus, I have added to the end of the DOSBox config file, under [autoexec], the following lines.
mount c c:\foldername
This will automatically put me in the correct folder with the virtual drive C mounted under DOSBox when I start it. NB: Replace "foldername" in the code with the actual folder name, like "oldgames" or whatever.
