"Well, I do not copy&sell the videos silly! I put them on a hard drive. I keep my DVIDA`s and trade/swap with friends."
Selling the originals while keeping a copy is indeed copyright infringement.
Your right to resell used videos exists only if you do not keep any copies. Conversely, your fair use right to make personal copies for backup or use on other types of players exists only so long as you do not dispose of the originals.
"That is no different than you buying Volume I, I buy Volume II, and we trade so we can have both volumes"
Which is a perfect example of illegal copyright infringement.
