Technically isn't it also illegal to make backups of games you own?
i think its in breich of the EULA that comes with games but the EULA is breiching your statutory rights as a consumer so its kind of a grey area.
No one is going to try and prossicute any one for backing up their own software because the eula is breiching your rights so they wouldnt ever win any case the took to court. But you did agree to the terms of the contract even though you were given no other option.
So like i said its a grey area. but one that the companys arent going to do anything about because they know its wrong.
If you backed up your game then sold the original, or renteed a game and made a backup of that, or even more greasy.. Backed up your game and sold copys on dvd. Then you would definatly be breaking the law.
Dont know if that helps clarify anything (i honestly doubt it did)This post has been edited by shambles1980: Oct 3 2011, 06:30 PM
