If I want to duplicate my own CDs for my personal use (like ripping a song for my iPOD from a CD of my own or keep a backup copy in my computer) would it REALLY become a CRIME ?? As I have paid for them, can't I do what I want from them for my personnel purposes ?? What do you think ?

If you are making a backup copy for your own personal use then that is allowed. It's only when you share that it goes into breaking copywrite law.
