Legality of downloading iso

RE: Legality of downloading iso
I'm not a lawyer, but I've always understood it to be illegal unless it's your own disk that you've ripped. In some countries like the USA, though, it's not supposed to be allowed to rip your own disks at all, but as far as I know, there's no legal precedent for it, so it's a gray area, but I don't see why anybody would care if you're not spreading the game on the Internet, and merely using it to play your investments (i.e., games) on phones, PCs, or whatever.

With all that said, even if it may be legal in some places to download ISOs or ROMs if games you already own, we still need to keep this site neutral and on the side of not discussing possibly illegally-downloaded games.

Other opinions are, of course, welcome.
