I live in the UK, and it seems the new games are getting harder and harder to make copies of or to make a backup to use in programs like FantomCD/Alcohol. I do this to save wear and tear on the original CDs, but it’s getting hard to do. I purchased UT2003 and never managed to make any backups. In the end it didn’t really matter since I stopped playing that game but I’ld like to know from someone what the legal situation is, since I know I am allowed to make a copy for backup purposes of my games but what happens when you can’t because of copy protection??
In this case is the company involved likely to send me a backup copy? If I send them my receipts and stuff?
