About This Course

In the world of digital media, instant file transfer and internet downloading, copyright protection has become a controversial topic. According to the “First Sale Doctrine,” a recent provision in copyright law, the owner of a copy of a copyrighted item has permission to sell or transfer that item. Therefore, the purchaser of an item may legally sell it or give it to another person. However, that provision is not without its exceptions and like most legal provisions, is far more complex than it appears. This CLE course will review all of these issues and exceptions and will cover:
  • Items manufactured in foreign countries and the Supreme Court decisions pertaining to them
  • The legal definition of ownership
  • The First Sale Doctrine’s impact on grey market imports under trademark law
  • Licensing vs. sales
  • Conflicting policy issues and international commerce
  • International policies vs. American Law
