Problem I see with dropping the "Copy" part of copyright

Can anybody tell me if I am wrong in the following process :
- Suppose we drop the "Copy" part of copyright law.
- I borrow a CD from a friend. This is legal.
- I copy this CD. This is now legal.
- I give back the CD to this friend.
Nothing illegal has been done, but there are now 2 copies of the CD, so the whole CD business is down in the dumps.
