    Does anyone actually play any online game with a backup version of the game, Is there any sort of banning or suspension to the console?
    Is it safe?

    There's no way of Nintendo finding out if its a backup or the original disc so you won't be banned or suspended.

    Ah alright, PS3 online is just :S atm with the Game-ID and such. Which lead me to think if the WII is the same.
    Thanks.

    That depends on the type of ban. Just don't cheat online. Cheat offline if you want, but don't ruin it for the rest of us. And to the original question, Nintendo has no way of telling whether you're using a legit disc or not, they can only detect the cheating. I play online via WiiFlow all the time.
