    Yes you can make one copy legally for yourself!

    First, it’s legal for you to make a single copy for backup purposes only. If you keep the digital copy and sell or give away the physical copy, you’ve broken the law. If you get rid of the physical disc then you are legally obligated to destroy the backup (although you could give it to the same person who now has the physical disc). At the same time, it’s only legal to make a backup if there’s no DRM on the disc. Breaking the DRM is a federal offense in the US, and you cannot legally purchase or import software to do it. The law against circumventing DRM means that if the disc has DRM on it, that supersedes your right to make a backup copy. Anti-circumvention laws vary in different countries, though. If you’re not in the US then it may or may not be legal.
