Question about the bios and legality.
#1
This is a fairly simple question and has nothing to do with "downloading" as I'm well aware that the bios are copyrighted and downloading them is illegal.

Anyway, I'm assuming the "copy your own bios" for PS2 is legally protected under the same law that allows legal backup of music/movies/games etc. IE one copy per item and if you sell/give away/trade the item you need to destroy the copy.

If that is what protects it (this is an assumption on my part) does that mean if I were to sell my PS2 would I need to delete my bios files?

I don't there's any use in selling your ps2, you wouldn't make much profit anyway. And, the prices of ps2 is getting so slow as 20-40 dollars these days.
