It is actually very simple.

Almost no electronics companies will repair an item without proof of purchase (and if one does it is the odd one). Proof of warranty is not only for grey market goods but also for stolen goods which is a good thing IMO. It also verifies sale date in case it was sold past the expected sale date. No big deal to send it in. I scan my written invoices and keep a copy of my electronic ones just in case. You can usually go back to where you bought it as well for them to give you a copy.

The warranty you fill in online (or the warranty card) may be used for Marketing but also if they have a recall on the item for an example if it can start on fire, they will need to contact you. Don't register or register false info and they have no way to tell you. It is not often this is necessary but it can happen.
