Former USC student wins Supreme Court copyright decision

former USC student who bought textbooks in his homeland of Thailand and sold them in the United States won a major Supreme Court ruling on copyright law that gives foreign buyers of textbooks, movies and other products a right to resell them in the United States without the permission of the copyright owner.

Supap Kirtsaeng was sued by publisher John Wiley & Sons for violating its copyright protection. A jury in New York agreed with the publisher, and Kirtsaeng was assessed damages of $60,000 for willfully violating the company’s copyrights.

But in a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court reversed that judgment Tuesday and ruled that Kirtsaeng had the better interpretation of the law.
