stewieSo for those not following this Supreme Court Case if this did not fall the way it did today all used stores would have probably ended up shutting down.

This was a case in which used goods being resold without paying copyright holders their fee would have been found just and all used stores would have then in turn have to pay royalties on all used goods to the original copyright holder.

Lucky for us, the Supreme Court does have a brain in some cases, and this had an interesting group of dissenters…

“Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy dissented.”

Anyway Victory at the Court House for everyone involved!!!
