    OP said, "get a backup copy" how else would they obtain a backup copy without an original? I am being helpful without legally jeopardizing the site. That's why I said they are on their own when it comes to "getting" a backup copy should they go that route but theoretically it should work.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    To be all clear, I know the general rules of WiiHacks. Second of all, I was talking about my backups. I am completely against piracy myself. I have all the games that I used to play on USBLoader in my possession, including Black Ops.

    @Shift_Lock: Yes, I saw the part in guide. Thanks for the tip. I asked about the black ops thing because I read a rumour about that patch screwing up modchips.

    My plan was to rent one of the games, since I don't have one of them, and copy it to keep it some longer, since the only store I know that isn't too far away, only rents Wii-games for 48 hours. Since I am pretty careful about my actions, I don't want to put too much pressure on it. When I would be done, I would not need the disc anymore. The fact that I am not really interested in one of the games, makes throwing it away easier.
    Technically, yes, it is piracy. But I really don't know any other solution than buying a game that I would only use to get my Homebrew back. And at least I am not some person with 120 downloaded games on his hard disk.

    I understand your discussion though, and all I can say is to keep up the good work. At least keep WiiHacks clean of piracy, nobody can stop the people that use the extremely helpful guides for that purpose.

    Thanks all.

    Apparently you don't understand the rules. Piracy is piracy (which you just admitted to) regardless of reason. Rent the game when you have time so you are not committing crimes. No assistance with piracy or asking for it...Thread closed.
