This is what happens when a cheap settop DVD player design allows a simple fall to the floor, upside down. The cover rammed the spindle into the disk. The cheap tray allowed disk to flex and crack.
If there was no backup the replacement would have to be purchased at full retail price. That does not benefit me or you. Backup your investment. No political speech just common sense.
DMCA does not allow fairuse, however, other copyright laws are not excluding the making of a backup. This kind of event, an accident, is not the same as making copies for all you friends. That would be immoral and could make for legal problems.
