Does leaving a DVD show in pause for hours at a time damage the disk?

Does anyone know whether any damage occurs if someone is playing show from a DVD and then presses Pause, and then leaves it that way for many hours, so later in the day he can resume watching the show from where he left off?
I'm asking because one of my DVDs got scratched, and it has a show that I play often. Perhaps I mishandled the DVD, but since I'm usually very careful about that, I was wondering if it may be because of all the times I left the disc on Pause.
Thank you
