A few things you should know.
1.) If you payed for this software, you were ripped off by somebody. The software can be downloaded for free at http://www.eytam.com/mama.
2.) This program wasn't made by Carenegie Mellon University, Mama was made by taking the source files from Alice, and slightly changing them. Notice the software message says, "This program contains software that was written by Carnegie Mellon University."
3.) Meirs created a social group about Mama here.

It's more accurate to say that if you paid to use it, you were ripped off. See here about these legal things, when you pay for a License to use a program, it either means you're paying to use it in a commercial environment or there are features not included in the free version. Probably the second, but if it was the first, that means you can't legally sell or distribute in their format (In this case .mam)

A few things both of the last posters should know

1) The free license that Alice is released under allows for the modification and re-distribution of the Alice codes itself or any products made from Alice or the modifications, as long as the name "Alice" is not used and credit is given to Carnegie Mellon for providing the source code. This means Mama is not a rip-off, nor is it illegal.

2) The software can be downloaded for free, yes, but it can only be used for a limited time before the trial period expires and you have to pay for the full license.

3) Don't comment about things you don't fully understand unless you're asking for clarification.

EDIT: Alice's actual past:
(It might seem rubbish and Alice 99 was rubbish, but Alice 99 was better in some ways, like it had a built in object creator and could actually run collision detection and particle systems properly)

I was nice to Meirs, gave feedback and said how good Mama was and he gave me a free license, I never asked for a license.
