Default Re: ROMs and Piracy

Because copy-protection gets in the way of playing a legitimatly-owned game? This isn't entirely related, but at one point, the first disc of one of my games cracked due to the difficulty of getting it out of the box. Since I didn't have any backups of the disc, and the game required the CD, I don't think there's any way for my to legitimatly play it again without paying twice. (I just stopped playing the game, in the end)

A good argument for making backups! But I have found that companies are always really good about replacing things like that. Check the support info in the manual or website and you'll find they are probably happy to do a replacement of some kind.

Most forms of copy protection (DRM, anyone?) make it virtually impossible to make backups that are both legal and working.
