    The sale or purchase of backup software is illegal and therefore against forum rules.

    Yes it is according to U.S. Copyright law. The backup must be a backup of the actual disc you own and not a copy of another disc. Your best options is to get a DVD writer. There not all to expensive now.

    I can't really speak for the U.K. but from what I've seen in the forums here they are much stricter than the U.S. on this sort of thing. Either way, it's against forum rules.

    Ok, I did the research. According to the new copyright law passed in 2003 in the U.K., you are forbidden from making backups at all of copyrighted software. This includes making your own backups or someone else making them for you for purchase.
