In Kirtsaeng v. Wiley, 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.  Advocates will discuss the reaction of the Supreme Court at oral argument this past fall, as well as the implications of the Supreme Court’s decision.
