I didn't even know this was an issue. The repercussions if this went through would have been catastrophic

Supreme Court backs student in dispute over used textbook sales

Quote
he millions of Americans who sell used items on eBay and at garage sales, flea markets or church raffles got a big victory Tuesday in the U.S. Supreme Court.

The court ruled that copyrighted items made overseas -- and that includes not only books but also CDs, DVDs, computers, watches and anything else with copyrighted material in it -- are covered by a federal law that says a person who buys such a product is free to turn around and sell it.

The ruling came in a case involving Supap Kirtsaeng, a student from Thailand who was surprised by the high cost of academic textbooks when he arrived in the U.S. to attend college. He asked his parents to search bookstores back home and send him much cheaper English language versions -- published overseas and sold at a fraction of the price -- of the same texts.

He was soon running what amounted to a small business out of his apartment, helping to pay his way through school by selling textbooks on eBay. The exact amount of his profit is unclear, but court records say it was around $100,000.

The publisher of some of the books he sold, John Wiley & Sons, sued him in federal court, and a New York jury ordered him in 2009 to pay $600,000 in damages. When he said he had nowhere near that kind of money, he had to hand over personal property, including his computer, printer and golf clubs. A federal appeals court upheld the verdict.

A law known as the the first-sale doctrine says if you buy the latest novel, you can then sell it on a website or give it away to the church library without violating copyright laws. A who's who of companies and groups involved in selling used merchandise had urged the Supreme Court to rule that the doctrine applied to goods made overseas.

The court ruled 6-3 that it does. The opinion, written by Justice Stephen Breyer, said that's what Congress intended and that's what the law has long been understood to mean.

"Reliance upon the 'first sale' doctrine is deeply embedded in the practices of those, such as booksellers, libraries, museums, and retailers, who have long relied upon its protection," Breyer wrote.

A contrary ruling, he said, "would prevent the resale of, say, a car, without the permission of the holder of each piece of copyrighted automobile software."

EBay warned that a ruling in favor of the publisher would have been a blow to "trade, consumers, secondary markets, e-commerce, small businesses and jobs." Goodwill Industries said such an outcome would have had "a catastrophic effect on the viability of the secondary market and, consequently, on Goodwill's ability to provide needed community-based services."

"There are enough copyright owners out there -- and enough crazy copyright lawsuits," said a group of book store operators in a friend of court brief. "No one should be put to the choice of violating the law and hoping they don't get caught, and losing their business."

Totally agree that once a product is bought and paid for, the consumer has every right to do with it what he or she wants to do, including selling it. Had this gone through, it would have had a profound impact on what I could and couldn't sell on eBay right now. A little off topic here, but the Video Game industry has been in an uproar over "lost" sales when their games are resold at a drastic price reduction. Is it no wonder that the majority of people, myself included prefer to buy used games for more than half the cost of a new one? Maybe if they would drop the ridiculous price point of $60 per game down to say $30-40, gamers would be more than willing to pay at that price. But what do they do? They try to strong arm retailers that sell used copies with legal action. In the end, within 2 years time, all the games will be 'Downloads' only, taking away our rights to sell off games once we are done with them. On top of that, the rumor is that these games will also be $70 and higher once the new consoles street. So, we now have to pay a higher price for an item that we are literally "stuck" with for life. There will be no way to recoup some, if not all of what we paid for, which absolutely blows and screams of price gouging.
