Great question! And, this is definitely a question that needs to be
addressed to the copyright holders of the materials you have and wish to
move to a different medium.

It's not an automatic thing, by any stretch, that you can move the content
to another format without permission from (and/or payment of $ to) the
holders of the copyrights.
