    If you own the game is it ok to download the game according to the law?

    That's honestly kind of a touchy subject. According to law, it is legal to have a backup copy of any software/movie you have, as long as it is for BACKUP purposes only (ie, letting a friend keep it at their place would be illegal). Downloading in general though is illegal in the United States, you can get in trouble for downloading in the U.S. Right now Canada has protection as far as downloading is concerned. But yeah, to answer your question, if you back up software/games if you own the original copy is legal.

    even if you own the game, downloading the iso is still illegal. the iso file youre downloading is illegal since its still pirated. theyll get you simply because you contributed to piracy.. even if you own the games

    theres no legal way to download commercial games. if it isnt offered by the company for free, then its stealing

    not really. everyone does it. think about how many laws u break per day besides downloading illegal files? speeding. check. crossing a road without using a crosswalk? check. spitting your gum out the window? check, you just littered. forget to signal when u changed lanes? uh huh.. another one broken. kick someones ass recently? just got away with assault.

    downloading games is the least of the police's problems when u think about it. i dont really advocate it, but i aslo dont really believe most psp games are worth what they charge. its either wait till their $20, download, or pay $50 for a game. tough call

    If downloading a "backup" was illegal then we would all be SOL, ever wonder why you can download and re-download drivers for your pc? Because you own the product and are allowed to have a recovery disc or "backup" of your OS. So yea it is a pretty tricky deal, its legal but its extremely easy to f*ck yourself by downloading a "backup" say if you have madden 08 and you dl a backup but the one you own is US release and the one you dl is EU release then you are pirating because its not the same product. This will be a huge post if i keep going on what you can and cant do so to sum it up, if you do dl anything make sure you own a copy first and dont abuse your privileges
    Upgraded My first PSP all the way to 3.51!!! Hell yea, then got online the next night and found out you can mod them, so I yelled as loud as I could with my inside voice WTF?!?!?!?! I sold it to some dork and bought a used one for 80 bucks... So 2 crappy nights and 80 bucks later!!!!!

    2.71>2.8>3.51 M33> 3.52 M33!!! Best 80 bucks I have ever spent!!!
