It is my understanding that if you own a piece of intellectual property,
i.e., you bought a legal copy, you may make a copy for personal backup
purposes only. If my understanding is correct, I am not violating
laws when I photocopy sheet music, CDs, tapes, etc. that I already own
and DO NOT give or sell them to any other person.
