Just as a side note, it is NOT legal to make copies for friends if you're not making money off of it. I say this because I know someone was going to say you can. I work for a company that deals with copyright (specifically music), and so I can vouch that the two statements above are correct. Except that I'm not sure about breaking copy protection, either. My guess it that it would be illegal (for lack of a better term) since you're buying a license to use the software, not the actual software itself. Which is why not everything is open-source. As for music, I would think it'd be legal to break copy protection, as you're buying the actual music & CD.
Apple? Macintosh? What are these strange words you speak?
