See http://www.acm.org/pubs/copyright_policy/. Particularly the
following part:

  "Under the ACM copyright transfer agreement, the original copyright
  holder retains:


  * the right to post author-prepared versions of the work covered by
    ACM copyright in a personal collection on their own Home Page and
    on a publicly accessible server of their employer. Such posting is
    limited to noncommercial access and personal use by others, and
    must include [...]"

Most authors do put their papers on their web pages nowadays.

On a side note, it is a little strange that the research community
does the research, writes and typesets the papers, and does most (?)
of the arrangements for the conferences, and still someone else gets
the copyright. University libraries have to pay lots of money for
access to publications. I may have missed some term in the equation,
