Default Burning games?

I have Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and I want to burn it for a friend. How do I do that? Is it possible?

it is possible but I believe it's illegal to burn games and give them out to people, even friends.

no prob.. but.. it wouldn't necessarily be illegal if you gave your friend your cd key as well right?... i mean... if you give it to your friend and it results in you not being able to play, it's definitely not illegal.. it's kinda how world of warcraft offers free download for their game. it's the game key that's worth money, not the game itself.

if he would be doing that he wouldn't need to burn the game in the 1st place because he could just give the disc to his friend too.
