Say that, for my upcoming birthday, someone gifts me a copy of the hit film Shrek 2 on DVD.
Say that, instead of being professionally pressed and shrink-wrapped, my new copy of Shrek 2 is a shiny DVD+R with "Shrek 2" written on it in permanent marker, and comes in one of those white paper sleeves. One might reasonably surmise that the copy was produced without the permission of the copyright holder.
Am I allowed to watch Shrek 2? If not, is that because I (as opposed to the manufacturer) lack a license from the copyright holder? By what legal mechanism would a Shrek 2 DVD whose manufacture was properly licensed confer that necessary license for Shrek 2 to its owner?
Unlike in this question about a similar situation involving a computer, we can assume that my DVD player does not operate by making additional copies.
