Will You Be Owned?

I've never done this before but it appears to be in a good cause.

As reported in The Atlantic (a highly respected magazine). the Supreme Court will be hearing a case where they will decide whether or not people can legally resell items that they have legally purchased, such as: iPad's, watches, Macbooks, cameras, etc.

Apparently certain corporations want you to get permission from the manufacturer before you can resell any copyrighted item made or assembled in another country. Since I intend to start reselling my Japanese made cameras soon, it is a subject that is dear to me.

The case will be presented to the Supreme Court on Monday, October 29th and some political types are organizing an online protest.

  1. Ed Healy heard you were in China. Any interesting stories and pictures. Did your companion take you to newly undiscovered places? I am sure the readers would appreciate your travelogues that you do after each trip. An avid follower.

  2. Yes I did go to unusal places like the mountains where they shot Avator, Confucius' hometown where every other person claims to be related to him and Jian, a city of underwater fountains where they are more illegal cabs where there are legal ones but you still can't get a taxi 5 pm. Another point of interest is that the cabs all have top lights but you can never tell if a customer is inside or not.

    I will write about it but, at the moment, the trauma of local cab drivers seems more important.

  3. wow great information i was looking for that.
