What program are you talking about? I would think there would be copyright issues involved.

Copying a program is not likely to raise any copyright issue. I backup and make duplicates of programs frequently, and many programs (Especially program that will fit on a floppy) are not restricted in this way anyway.

I've edited the assistance part out of your post. While I should have been more specific in that I'm not only concerned with copyright issues but possibly breaking copy protection, it's not appropriate to override a moderator making a query of this nature by going ahead and giving assistance until it has been determined that it's OK to do so. Please keep that in mind in the future.

Do you really think it's possible that a program that would fit on a floppy is subject to copy protection?
You guys seem to see copy protection issues in the strangest places.

Yes, there are MANY very small programs that are copyrighted and protected.

Well, let's beat this to death.
Name one program that's copy protected and would fit on a floppy.

That won't be necessary and considering that you already have several notes for rules violations in your profile, you might want to tread lightly as the ice is getting very, very thin.
