Is it considered illegal?

Hi!

I bought my d2 exp set cds almost 1,5-2 years ago. Im using it very often, but i noticed some small scratch on it (the cd is used almost every day 1-5 hours). Is it considered illegal, if i make a copy over it (if i can...well...i havent tried it yet), and use the image from my hard disk insted of using the cd itself? I have two reasons for using image instead of cd :
- it prevents my original cds gone wrong too soon,
- reading datas from hard disk is far more faster than reading from cd, so at some points (at Shenk, Baal, and some other main points of the game) there wouldnt be that big lag, and all the game would run more smoothly.
So, how do u see that?

There should be some linky somewhere where everything concerning that is explained. Let me take a peek for you.

I think your info should be here.

YOu can make a copy and use it for archival purposes": That's 100% legal and done by many :)

Just be sure the program you are using is able to copy the CD correctly. I tried Nero and that wasn't able to copy the security measures so the CD copy was unable to run DII (kept asking me to enter the disk). I'm not sure what program would be successful in this process, as I never took the time to figure it out.

depends on where you live.
in germany it is illegal to "circumvent" any kind of "effective" copy protection, personal copy or not. as long as you dont do this, you are allowed to make personal copies.
lots of room for an interpretation here, but still ...
