    Since, as I understand it, it is perfectly legal for me to make backups of my original disks. Would it therefore be legal for me to download a copy of said game if the original was damaged? Before anyone asks “How would anyone tell?” the thought did occur to me.

    Anyway, if the mods (or anyone else I should listen too) tell me this is illegal I shall drop the subject, if not I have some further questions.

    Thanks in advance
    Riv

    here's the deal. you gotta do what you gotta do, but even if you own the game there can be no discussion of downloading games here. It's too close to piracy and any discussion about it can easily go that direction even if the original post wasn't about piracy at all. So it's just an understood (and enforced) rule here not to discuss downloading games at all. It just makes things easier on everyone.

    Fair enough.
