yes, since you have the original, you would be only making a backup.

No, I don't think it would be legal. You're not DLing a VHS, and you don't have the DVD version purchased

If you legal baught it, you have rights to own it.

In whatever form, you have rights to it.

So long as you dont distribute it you break no law.
