• Warez is banned from all forums on this board.

• You have a legitimate right to own a backup game providing you also own the original (subject to state & country). Not everyone has the means to make a backup and that is why trading in this is allowed.
• Sellers the onus is on you to satisfy yourself that a buyer is in possession of the original at the time of your trade.
• Reference and Ripper Posts
Unsubstantiated ripper accusation topics are all too frequent, and will be deleted. There are other websites that will provide these services.
