yer a loser.

The copyright warning means you may not publically display the movie
(i.e use it to make money or as a promotional device)

you can have all the private viewing parties you like.

No, they don't claim that. However, the movies are licensed for private
home viewing only, so if you charge admission, there's a problem.

Also, be sure to draw your curtains when playing DVDs!
