UPCOMING EVENT: Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons: A Post-Argument Discussion with Counsel for Parties and Amici, Thursday, March 21 at 6:00pm

In this case, the Supreme Court revisits the relationship between the Copyright Act’s limits on importation of a copyrighted work without the copyright owner’s permission and the first sale doctrine, which permits resale of copies of a work without permission.  The Court divided evenly over this issue in a 2010 case pitting Costco against Omega.
