You won't get banned for playing backups provided you're using up to date CFW and your backups are verified correctly by ABGX360, have correct "security sector", dmi, pfi and topology data and in case of XGD3 formatted disks burnt using an ihas burner flashed with burnermax firmware.
The problem with this is that every year or two Microsoft have introduced new security measures that catch out the latest hacked firmware, which is then subsequently fixed by C4E, however since Microsoft strikes first, people then get banned during that period where a new firmware to combat the new checks hasn't been released.
This was a problem roughly 3-4 times in the 6 years the Xbox 360 has been out and not been a problem for at least 12 months, i.e no new security features have been added to the dashboard or disks since the introduction of XGD3 disks.
If you are on the latest hacked firmware and make proper backups, you will not be banned playing them online, that means you can play them early too as long as they are retail
rips. As stated previously, you may be banned for playing a game early that isn't a retail rip. But you would be banned even if you played that after
release date anyway.
