Is it legal to copy a DRM-free game and give it a friend?

I know it's wrong because of morals and stuff but I really wonder if it would be legal...?

No. It's not legal

At least in Germany you are allowed to make a copy for yourself as long as you don't circumvent some copy protection. However giving this copy away still would be illegal.

i think it's similar in the u.k. it's funny how the law allows a backup copy without messing with the copy protection. reducing the amount of backupable items to a negligible figure

A quote from GOG.com FAQ:
"Q: Can I share games with others?

A: Your account and games are for your personal use only. If you want to share them, you can always buy a gift for that person. The DRM-free nature of our service means that we trust you that this will not be abused."

and

" ... The same principle applies to movies - you're free to watch them anywhere you want, with anyone you want, as long as you don't share them with people who haven't purchased them."

I don't think anyone from GoG is going to show up at your doorstep, charge through with guns blazing and shoot up your fish tank if you do it.

Unless you're a 9/10 year old in Helsinki of course:

Actually the point is that it's backup copies. Which means that you just keep them and don't use, unless prime copy doesn't work. So at any given moment only one person can play a (license of) game. Or so the intention of the law is.

In my view (though it doesn't neccessary correct in legal terms) you can allow your friend to play a game as long as you don't play it yourself. That's what I see in "don't abuse the system", said by GOG.
