LCA Releases First Sale Fast Facts for Libraries
Posted on January 18, 2013 by Corey Williams

Have you heard of the "first sale doctrine?" You've likely heard (if you're
a *District Dispatch* subscriber) about the Supreme Court case *Kirtsaeng
v. Wiley & Sons*, and that it might affect library lending. However, the
details of the case about a student lawfully importing textbooks into the
U.S. and then selling them on eBay are seemingly complex and technical. The
Library Copyright Alliance has published a one-page summary, "First Sale
Fast Facts for Libraries<http://www.librarycopyrightalliance.org/bm~doc/lca-tp-firstsale18jan13.pdf>,"
that provides you key information to understand the first sale doctrine and
what is at stake in the *Kirtsaeng* case.

Additional information on the case is available at ALA's First Sale
Doctrine and Kirtsaeng v. Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Also, the ALA is a founding member of the Owners' Rights
a diverse coalition of businesses, associations and organizations that have
joined together to protect first sale rights in the United States.
