First Sale Doctrine[^]


If ALL copyrighted material is covered then possibly you would not be able to sell a used car as the software in the control electronics would be covered.

Or what about second hand TV's or Fridges etc?

Just about everything we buy today has some form of copyrighted code or technology in it.


Personally I think that if you buy something then it should be yours absolutely, including the disposal methods.
If I buy a kindle and decide to sell it, why should I not do so, even with all the books I have purchased still loaded on it?

I paid for them, and if they were deadwood technology there is no prohibition (at the moment).
