The warranty is a Leica AG warranty, not an agency warranty.  If a dealer
didn't sell it to you as the original purchaser they're not required to
repair it as the warranty terminates when the equipment is resold, say by a
Grey market dealer to you.
The words on my Passport Protection Plan for my R100 F2.8:  "The Leica
Product you have just registered with Leica Camera Inc. is now covered under
Leica's unique non transferable Passport Protection Plan."  Note the phrase
"non transferable".  When the Grey market dealer buys the gear from an
authorized dealer, the warranty is assigned to the Grey Market dealer and
not to any subsequent purchaser.
