As someone who just received a CD with a book but no longer owns a CD player independent of my PC (Gnome Ubuntu 14.04/Gnome 3.12) I have to say that in this situation the copyright issues don't seem to apply or if they do they are unfair. I simply want access to "my" CD.
In response to the request for information on how to do this, first install abcde:
sudo apt-get install abcde
Then run abcde in terminal
It reads the CD, asks you a couple of questions copies the tracks to your computer. For more information see this helpful HowTo.
Apparently a program named cdparanoia will also address the issue of accessing product that you have paid for already.
