What are you talking about? None of these actions infringe on copyright law. If you're making copies for yourself as backups, that's totally legal.
If you're selling items back to the store, they're like cars: once they're purchased new, you can buy and sell them to whoever you want.

The article doesn't promote copyright infringement, which is defined as the **unauthorized use** of material that is covered by copyright law. Changing or otherwise altering legally purchased CDs from one format (disc) to another (mp3 file) is authorized use. Posting those mp3 files online, however, is what gets people in trouble with copyright infringement.

My understanding is that under the fair use doctrine, you may make working copies for your own use. You may not share those with others. If the original leaves your possession, you may not retain copies in any form.
Selling or trading CDs while you have retained a copy in any form appears to be copyright infringement. Chicago Guy's point is well taken.
