Can I make back-ups of installed computer programs in case my computer crashes?



You can do so if permitted by the terms and conditions accompanying the original software. The official website for the software may have FAQs as well as contact information in this regard. The authorised distributor or reseller could be your first point of contact and enquiry. In a scenario where the original CD-ROMs containing the software are still available, our copyright law does allow the owner of the software to make a back-up copy of the original CD-ROMs. This is only allowed if the back-up copy is made for the sole purpose of being used if the original copy is lost, destroyed or unusable. This exception applies even if the copyright owner states otherwise in the terms and conditions of use.
