    Is it legal to put cfw on a friend's psp and also give them a few .iso games IF they "Tell me" they already own the game and just want it on the memory stick because it is convenient? Thanks.

    Well if its your friend then I wouldn't worry about it. I mean who is really going to know. But by "friend" you mean someone you are selling to I wouldn't do that.

    Go for it.
    I'm pretty sure it's not legal, but when has that ever stopped us?

    I think it is legal to put CFW on any psp because it just voids the warranty. The illegal part is what you do with the cfw ;)

    Yea I charge 15 bucks to strangers for CFW but I'd never EVER sell them games... my close friends that I give games too I simply say to tell them that I do not exist (kinda like Neo)

    Place a custom firmware on a PSP voids the warranty on a PSP. So, yes it is illegal. However, it is not illegal for a person to back up games they already own or own a back up of a game they really do own. But, for you to give them a copy of something they don't own is illegal. Its a little confusing, but just thing of the copyright laws when it comes to music, it's pretty much the same with ISOs.

    Every country has different interpretations. In New Zealand it is definitely illegal to give a friend back ups of your games. Even if he already owns them.
    What they call 'Format shifting' is a grey area so far, no-one has really tested it in court, mainly because no-one wants to (no-one cares if you put your cds on your ipod)

    putting cfw on a psp is legal

    putting iso's on a friend's psp for money is illegal unless he/she owns it

    but if it's your friend, he wouldn't go rat you out.

    I don't see why this is an issue.

    Almost everything about the PSP with CFW is illegal but thats never stopped us.

    Just give him the game. Call it a "gift".
