German term or phrase: Werkträger
Here's the context:

LIZENZGEBER erhält nach Veröffentlichung 20 Freiexemplare. LIZENZGEBER kann vom LIZENZNEHMER weitere Exemplare der Werkträger mit einem Nachlaß von 50% (fünfzig Prozent) des Ladenpreises beziehen. Eine Weiterveräußerung dieser Werkträger durch LIZENZGEBER an Endkunden ist von LIZENZNEHMER genehmigt. Der Gewinn von LIZENZNEHMER bei durch LIZENZGEBER verkauften Werkträgern soll die Lizenzerlöse des LIZENZGEBERS aus Verkäufen durch LIZENZNEHMER nicht überschreiten.

The "Werkträger" in this case is a DVD which the licensee is acquiring the rights to from the licensor. GEMA ("Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte") translates this as "works carrier" on their site, which I'm not too thrilled with. Does anyone know of a way to express this concept in real English? Thanks in advance!
