Paid for the video in terms to distribute it by streaming? Or just to view it yourself?

I have bought the DVD, can I stream it to my registered users?

I'm not 100% sure on things when it comes to Copyright and Permissions of stuff like this...

Nopes, definitely not. DVD's bought are for your viewing. You cannot distribute it, unless you have the license along with it to distribute the content.

Hi,

To get a license, you need to contact the distributor, and get their explicit written permission, which generally incurs a charge, which can be well into the hundreds of dollars.

For example, in terms of a game, if I brought a game from Sony Online, I would have to contact ActiVision to get authority to distribute it.
