Oh, silly American copyright! In the German equivalent of coyright, Urheberrecht, there is the right to a Privatkopie, private copy, which has been defined over the years to include all personal backups and up to 7 copies of a work shared with close family and friends, whether in the same household or not. For this purpose, it is even perfectly legal to break any DRM (108b UrhG).

Germans copyright critics keep complaining they don't have fair use, but in this case, fair use seems just plain dumb complained to the practical Privatkopie.
