Supreme Court Splits on First Sale

Last week the Supreme Court issued a split 4-4 ruling in the Costco v. Omega lawsuit. The opinion can be found here.

The split affirms the decision of the Ninth Circuit that the first sale doctrine does not apply to copyrighted works manufactured and sold abroad. The case has been reported in many news outlets, including the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
