****Tucked into the U.S. Supreme Court’s agenda this fall is a little-known case that could upend your ability to resell everything from your grandmother’s antique furniture to your iPhone 4.

At issue in Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons is the first-sale doctrine in copyright law, which allows you to buy and then sell things like electronics, books, artwork and furniture, as well as CDs and DVDs, without getting permission from the copyright holder of those products.****

Anything that is copyright material is subject to this ruling. Which nowadays is just about everything.I think about it and it seems the patent office is what put a strangle hold on developing technologies. In the time from the birth of this country to the establishing of patents, we, the USA brought the world into the modern age and then it all stalled out. That little time before gov regulation imposed itself on citizens shows me we are capable of astonishing things when someone isnt telling us we cant do it this way or that way.

It wont go through, reselling has too large of a market, that would disrupt too many lives to go unheard like a lot of laws they try passing. This would cause an uproar, kick all of these assholes out of office taking away from the people.
