    Do you have a hot cup of coffee that you need to put down or something?

    well...if i own a legal copy of a game it is then legal to create backups of this game and play them via hack.

    plus its a lot cheaper!

    And how will you generate a backup from a broken disc??? I think you mean, if you download the game from internet but own a disc of the game then its legal, right. Well your WRONG. It illegal to download it weither you own the disc/game or not.

    It also differs a lot from country to country.

    The main problem is that it has been proved in court that making a backup for personal use is coverd under the fair use section of the copyright laws (UK/US), BUT using any software or hardware that circumvents a protection system (chipping/softmodding/deCSS/BCA) etc is Illegal with regards to the DCMA.

    If your making backups of discs you own for personal use, then i dont see that any law enforcement agency is going to bother with you.

    If your making backups and selling them on your street corner/pub/school, you better run and hide.

    *NOTE: I am not a lawyer, if you follow my advice and get busted, dont come crying to me, its just personal opinion/stuff ive read.*
