cd burning

When you burn a cd or dvd for backup reasons, how can you get the original design which is printed on the cd or dvd onto the copy, I have seen these around so I know its possible to do but which would be the best program to use?....

Its illegal to burn a backup unless your in the USA, it breaches copywrite ;-)

So What if you lose the original or it gets damaged, isn't it wise to copy everything you buy so that you have a back-up?...

Yes I'm afraid that dadyassa is correct, in the UK it is illegal to copy any copywritten material without the copyright holders permission for any purpose whatsoever, including backup. In the USA I "believe" that you are allowed by law to make one copy as a backup in case of damage, but in the UK that is not the case.

OK Thanks Guys.....

It may be wise, you may even be able to do it. But it is still illegal to do so.
