Copyright Reminder

First sale

The owner of a lawfully obtained copy of a copyrighted work may dispose of that copy (lend, rent, sell, give-away, or throw away) without permission of the copyright owner.  Under the first-sale doctrine, a faculty member could lend out his copy of a book or a DVD to students in his class. This exception does not apply to recorded music, and many software licenses prohibit the use of the first-sale doctrine.
