David Weiskopf (1816966) writes "We are taking another unscheduled break from our two-part holiday round-up (see Part I here) because the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on the important and closely watched Omega S.A. vs. Costco Wholesale copyright case centered on the availability of the first-sale doctrine defense to importation of copyright protected works made outside of the United States and imported into the U.S without permission of the copyright owner (which is otherwise prohibited absent availability of the first sale doctrine defense) — a type of 'grey market' good."
