On some microcontrollers you can read the contents of the ROM and copy it to a new, identical part.  Often you'll need a special programmer (ie. expensive) to do this, but not always.

Also, some microcontrollers will have copy protection enabled which will prevent you from doing this.
If its not yours, its illegal to copy code from someone else's microcontrollers
