Comments: Atari v 321 Studios, DMCA lawsuit over Games X Copy

I think it's actually an open issue whether fair use allows you to make personal backup copies of copyrighted material (even ignoring the DMCA). I read the Sony case rather closely and the holding did not go this far.

It's copyright law section 117, not the _Sony_ case.
