I am from the US and I still cannot understand how our government can sue some company from another country for writing a software program in which our laws do not apply. I know that US consumers will purchase the program, but hell, Elby doesn't even list the US currency for the price of the key. As a consumer, I should have the right to make a legal backup of something that I purchased. (ie: software) Hell, everything I purchase has some type of warranty attached to it - but I am not allowed to make a safe backup of a $30 DVD disc? Yet, I can purchase a $7 mouse from BestBuy and still get a 2 year warranty for it? Everything has a warranty and if I invest my hard earned money into a movie and something happens to it, I should be able to play my backup. How much money do the studio execs need to live? I make a heck of a lot less than I did 2 years ago and I still love certain movies to the point where I want to purchase them to keep. I feel bad that certain companies have succumbed to our (the US) laws and have gotten scared to the point of spending tens of thousands of dollars on lawyers, but this sh|t just isn't right. I am to the point of other users out there and don't really care if it takes 2 plus programs to make a backup of a movie that I want to preserve. I have the right.
