: I have purchased a piece of software in CD format
: that can't be copied or backed up with any standard
: CD writer program. It is protected by a 3rd party CD
: protection scheme. It may be possible to circumvent
: this copy protection by the use of a rather esoteric
: copying program. (not a commonplace item).

: I believe that the right to make a backup for archival
: purposes has been well established. If this is
: incorrect then please correct me.

: The question is this; Has the publisher abrogated
: my rights to a backup by making the CD such that
: it can not be copied ? Is he obligated to publish
: in such a way that backups can be made ? Or is the
: ability to create a backup more a privilege than
: a right ?

: Thanks

Dear JD Lail,

The copyright law does not give you a right to ba back up. That is up to the copright proprietor.
