Windows 7 DVD - backup


I have just bought a 3 license install for Windows 7 home premium for my family.

Because it will be used by my children who have their own laptops i wanted to make them a copy if they need the DVD when i am not here.

Am i allowed to do this as i have a 3 license version?

If i am allowed, what is the best software to use to make the DVD backup? Preferably free.

You are allowed to make archival backups of any piece of software that you own... get the burning program -=> here

Yes, for personal use it's deemed reasonable to make backups.

In my personal opinion you'd do better to make a drive image and back it up than simply copy the original DVD (so check out tools like Acronis TrueImage...)

However for making an image of a DVD, and burning copies, something like UltraISO (free 30 day trial offered on their website) should do the job admirably
