Default Scanning purchased paper?

Does anyone scan their purchased paper and use it as a digital background on their cards instead of using it up?

My printers don't print the colors well enough to make digital background paper. I prefer the real stuff. I have used black digitals and colored them, but for the most part, I use the dp.

I think there might be copyright issues with scanning purchased papers.
But even if there aren't, my scanner sucks. And even if my scanner was okay, my printer ink is waaay too expensive for me to even think about doing that. Also, my printer sucks.

If you want to print out papers though, there are many websites that offer free digi papers for you to download and print...
Here's some:
Free Digital Scrapbooking - Papers
ShabbyPrincess.com :: FREE Digital Scrapbooking, Free downloads, Digital scrapbooking, Computer Scrapbooking
Free Digital Scrapbooking

edited to add: I'm sure you can find even more by googling.

I haven't seen anything prohibiting a person from doing it for personal use, although I think the paper companies would highly discourage it. I have done it a couple of times when I needed just a little piece more to finish a project. I tend to use more digi papers if I want to print multiples and make sure I have enough to finish my project. Nothing worse than working late into the night only to find out you're short 1 piece of paper.
