What you're asking is illegal

What you're asking is illegal. Not only would it break copyright law to send you a replacement because you broke yours, but there's also no way to verify that you actually broke yours (and are just trying to pirate a copy).

Not necessarily . . .

. . . but it would bump right up against the limits . . . and would certainly be illegal IF it's just a piracy ploy!

I wonder if Quark will be requiring users who lose their licensed software in hurricanes again this year to buy a new copy and submit the bill as their claim. That smelled a LOT like insurance fraud to me back in the day. If the media breaks/fails, the user still has a right to use the LICENSED software and ought to be able to obtain new media for a reasonable charge. Quark wanted to have it both ways and that was just plain WRONG!

Someone (or multiple someones

Someone (or multiple someones) has been offering OS 8 CD's on the LEM swap list for $10 shipped I think.
