	I just wanted to add what DMGII said, If you
bought the material, you are allowed to make a copy
for personal use as a back up, in case your copy
becomes damaged.  I believe your case would clearly
come under fair use.
	However, fair use is currently under strong
attack from the music recording industry, the
movie industry, Disney, Microsoft, etc.  The
freedoms we are accustomed to may be a thing of the
past 50 years from now.
