What you are buying when you actually buy a cd. Are you buying the physical disc, and the digitized music represented by 1's and 0's, OR are you buying the right to listen to that music.

If the first case is true, then you should be able to do what you want with the disc, and it's contents. Meaning, you could make as many copies for yourself as you wanted.

If the second case is true, and you are buying the rights to listen to the music, then why are your rights limited to that disc? If your cd became unplayable, then you would be owed another copy, because you would no longer be able to exercise the rights which you bought.
