    If that is what you are really using it for, yes.
    Fair use laws allow you to make a backup copy incase of damage to the original.

    It does not allow you to give out copies to others, or use other people's backups obviously.

    you can back up wii games, you cant load them as of yet but you can back them up, however there are only like 2 brands of dvd drives that can do it and i cant remember them off the top of my head. And it can also take up to 50 hours to back up a single game.
    If You Add My Wii Code, Please PM me with your code so i can add you. THANKS

    I love the Wii sports game (disc) that came with the Console. Since it is included for free with the console in US, you don't see it for sale in store shelves. Now what if after 6 months of use, you have serious scratches on the disc but you can't buy it to replace it. Would Nintendo ship you one free of charge or you are out of luck? It would be nice for a way to back it up (hey, there shouldn't be a need for piracy of this game, it is included for free with every console)

    See, that is not totally correct. There is judicial precedent (talking about the US here) for making a backup copy of a copyrighted work being protected by fair use. Until the DMCA you would absolutely be right. The DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act), however, states that it is illegal to circumvent any encryption that is intended to protect a copyrighted work from unauthorized duplication. Since DVDs have (rather pathetic) encryption in the form of CSS (Content Scramble System). Even though CSS is a pathetically weak form of encryption it is encryption nonetheless and potentially subject to the circumvention of encryption clause in the DMCA. Of course, the DMCA has not yet been tested in the judicial system and it is possible that this clause will be overturned...

    I'm no lawyer so it is also possible that I have no idea what I'm talking about (gotta cover myself...hehe).

    Yea the DMCA is an interesting piece of work, it will be interesting to see who they side with in most cases, though I know of at least 1 case where the right to a backup was upheld.

    maniackman, anything is possible. One day there will be a Wii mod chip I am sure.
