Yes, you can sell them after you register your copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office. In fact you can sell them before you register your copyright. Copyright does not affect your ability to sell. Copyright actually comes into existence once you create something in a physical form such as a dvd. Registration of a copyright gives you the ability to enforce your copyright in court as well as provide notice to the world of your ownership of the copyright. In addition, while it is no longer technically required, it is wise to put a copyright notice on all dvds you sell just so people don't get the idea that they can copy your dvds.
