This, of course, is not true. Maybe in the US, some forms of (digital) copying may be prevented by regulations, but not only content of which you hold the copyrights yourself, or no copyright is applicable or implied, also if you made the content, this all is not forbidden. Even more so, besides having a copier in every business office, also analog content is often free to copy (except when copy-rights are mentioned specifically).
But most importantly, in many countries in this world, you are allowed by law to make one personal copy used as a back-up of any content you paid for, including copy-righted content! I am sorry for many of you in the US in this respect, but to help you guys out: if you, for example, buy a domain and have your website hosted in one of the countries where personal back-ups are no problem, you can load as much copies on your own foreign website as you'd like (make sure you use a password to access them); just a thought, nothing illegal thus far. Now, sharing them would indeed be illegal, but many (including myself) are not interested in that anyway.
