A perfectly legitimate copy (as of time of reproduction) just can't
somehow become infringing by subsequent act of distribution of THAT copy
under terms and conditions that you don't like, silly. That's what
"first sale" / exhaustion is about. (The idea is that copyright owner
can "sell" copies (material objects) made by him and/or permissions to
reproduce by others and don't mess with secondary markets with respect
to copies made and distributed by him and/or made with his permission
and owned by others.)
