The backing up isn't the problem. But what are you going to do
with the backup? Copyright law allows you to make a backup for
personal usage. Redistributing, even a single
copy to a friend, isn't allowed.
Potential value of society is a subjective measurement, which,
luckely, doesn't play any role in copyright laws. Would you think
it's a good idea Microsoft incorperates GNU licensed software
in their closed software because of the "potential value to society"?
