Is not illegal to dump Bios from the Console you OWN. Neither is making a backup of the games you own.
That may have been the case in 2003-2009, but in 2010, the DMCA exemption that applied to that practice, was not renewed.Ger_Pa wrote: ↑Tue Jun 19, 2018 4:57 amIs not illegal to dump Bios from the Console you OWN. Neither is making a backup of the games you own.
Some PSX emulators even use their own BIos which are not as good as the real one but are legal to use.
Additionally, while making a backup of a game or software (ROM, in this context) is legal, stripping DRM is not legal and never has been. Without DRM the game will not run, so you can't legally ever use your "backup".US DMCA section 1201 wrote: Computer programs and video games distributed in formats that have become obsolete and which require the original media or hardware as a condition of access."
