I'm willing to bet you don't have kids, or a wife like mine.
My kids only have access to the backups, they don't have access to the originals. I should include my wife in that group because of the way she has treated her CDs over the years. Just throw 'em anywhere is her storage method. Needless to say she has tons of discs that are scratched beyond repair. She does the same with our DVD's, HD-DVDs, Blu, Wii games, music CDs... really anything round and made of plastic.
I honestly can say that the backup method has saved me more than once from having to go buy a replacement. Is what I'm doing illegal? I don't think so, not that the law would care about my feelings. But, my use is personal and there is a very real reason for it.

it is ridiculous that they disabled that on later firmware updates
many blu-ray players can play those; all Sony and Panasonic will play AVCHD
There was a guess floating around here that it was because of a licensing issue. No one knows for sure, but it's been gone for a while so the assumption is that it wasn't by accident it was removed. The hope is, someone posted this, that the licensing requirements have been opened up a bit which may allow LG to enable playback those discs without any problem. These are just guesses, and we'd have to hear from someone on the inside to know for sure.
