Ok Spath. About the CloneCD AWS feature being illegal: Why do you think the feature is disabled in the US/UK? Maybe because they want their program to be as legal as possible.
My point is - CloneCD is perfectly legal in US and UK as long as you dont use AWS (Who doesnt? ). The means that it copies a CD with (excluding AWS) is perfectly legal since it is an exact replica. AWS may (READ MAYBE) legal if it works like this - Weak sectors have EFM instruction that CD-Writer can't handle so CloneCD will provide additional instructions to allow it to write those sectors. But the sectors themselves aren't modified. That is legal too.
Daemon tools - perfectly legal since nothing is patched. Read the EULA of a game and I doubt you'll find anything that says "This software may not be run on a VirtualDrive"!
