US Supreme Court To Hear Copyright "First Sale" Case
"The case tests the so-called "first sale" doctrine, which generally allows the purchaser of copyrighted works to re-sell or use the work without the copyright holder's permission. That's why used bookstores, libraries, GameStop, video rental stores and even eBay are all legal. But how the doctrine applies to foreign-purchased works -- the so-called gray market -- has been a matter of considerable debate." Wired 10/25/12
