It IS legal to do this for PERSONAL USE ONLY, as long as you have a legal game. It is ONLY illegal if you distribute the files...Here is what the law says about that:
| § 1008. Prohibition on certain infringement actions|
No action may be brought under this title alleging infringement of copyright based on the manufacture, importation, or distribution of a digital audio recording device, a digital audio recording medium, an analog recording device, or an analog recording medium, or based on the noncommercial use by a consumer of such a device or medium for making digital musical recordings or analog musical recordings.
Next, comes the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). This is often used to stop distribution of certain copying programs. Replay Music operates by recording what comes out of the PC speakers, using capabilities built into Windows. We don't circumvent any copy protection systems, nor do we claim that Replay Music is designed to circumvent copy protection systems (which it isn't). The underlying technology behind Replay Music has been in use since at least 1999.
So, basically, this falls under the same category as a VCR/Cassette Recoder/DVD Recorder, etc. Source is Applian.com, as it is the easiest to find...Just a heads up.
