It's primary design is to allow you to emulate a CDRom off of an ISO image.

Perhaps you should read the first few lines of introduction:

DAEMON Tools is an advanced application for multiprotection emulation. It is further development of Generic Safedisc emulator and incorporates all its features. This program allows running Backup Copies of SafeDisc (C-Dilla), Securom, Laserlock, CDCOPS, StarForce and Protect CD (and many others) protected games.

Its designed to defeat the copy protection.

It looks like DT also violates the DMCA:

Now, before you get all crankified and think that I agree with the DMCA and the current state of copy protection, relax.

I think that only 2 installs sucks.

I think that some measures in the DMCA suck

But I also work in the software industry and I think that some copy protection is valid and is required.
