Some info here:

My understanding is this: If a manufacturer states a product is warranted for one year, it is covered for one year from the original purchase date regardless of the current owner. They will require an original purchase receipt for warranty verification.

One exception is when the warranty statement says " warrants this product to the original purchaser only". This is pretty rare, as it excludes anyone who buys something for another person as a gift. But without that wording (original purchaser) it doesn't matter who currently owns the product, as long as the ORIGINAL receipt can be produced.

Warranty start dates have always been the date that you physically take possession of a product. Maybe there's an exception but I haven't heard of it.
