As you might expect, 321 Studios bills Games X Copy as a game backup utility.
GAMESXCOPY lets you make a PERFECT backup copy of virtually any PC Game. GAMESXCOPY is a powerful utility and all you need is a PC with either a CD or a DVD burner. No more threat of losing a game due to theft, scratches, skipping, freezing or other media imperfections. Your copy works just like the original; your entire collection can be archived and your investment protected.However, video game companies have charged that because the software circumvents copyright protection, it should be illegal, regardless of fair use.
