It's not my job to prove it goldy; just to inform you. However, I will explain why the law was made:

Back in the days of tapes, and 5Ľ discs it was easy for data to become damaged, and the law said you had the right to back up your software. Not just because of possible damage, but because software houses can become bankrupt, and get assets liquidated, leaving you with nowhere to return damaged discs. This was aimed at businesses more than the general public.

Business software isn't disc proected, as businesses won't stand for it. They always make archive copies of their software, for this very reason. Take the Windows OS's for example. Microsoft don't mind you copying windows, what they're interetsed in, is you buying licences for each machine you install a copy.

Anyway, this is as much as I'm going to say on the subject. This is <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/offtopic.gif" alt="" /> now, and no one appears to be on my side <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/puppyeyes.gif" alt="" />. After all, it's the consumer (you) I'm trying to represent here.
