Submission + - Right to Backup in the UK? 1

AlterRNow writes: The Sims 2 currently stands at around 17 "unique" releases coming to a total of over 20 discs ( if you have the CD versions ).
Being the sort to keep my computer in tip-top (ish) condition, Windows gets re-installed quite often. Installing the Sims 2 every time is a nightmare.

So I got in contact with EA and asked them how I could :-
    1) make back-ups of the game to reduce damage to the originals
    2) if it was possible to consolidate the whole thing into one installation.
Their reply?

"I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you, however, you will not be able to make copies of the games or consolidate all of them into one Disk."

Being a UK citizen, do I not have the right to make backup copies of the games?
