If the original copy was illegal, you're doubly illegal. If the first copy
was legal, you're singularly illegal. Unless: the item you're dealing
with is at physical risk and you've established through reasonable research
that replacements are not available in the existing marketplace...

Generally, the right to strike copies (make derivative works, as the law
views it) are the exclusive right of the copyright owner or the owner's agent.
