Is ripping music legal?

Hey everyone

I was just wondering if you knew if it was legal to rip music from lucas arts games using ScummRevisited. In my case, I am ripping music from Grim Fandango. BTW, I own a legit copy of Grim Fandango.

Does LucasArts condone this?

Thanks

For private use, there's no legal problems under the fair use clause.

If you were to sell the CD, that's a little edgier.

..."edgier" meaning illegal.

So, is it illegal to rip music from the game, and then put it up on the internet for download? (Like a lot of GF fan sites do)
