Well I am Australian so if you care to point which Aus site you found out about it first I'd be heaps interested.

Rather amazing over here how many people don't seem to care how much the IP and Copyright laws in Australia are now being heavily influenced by American media companies. Sometimes we get wins with judges but not all the time.

News Story

By the way, it seems the American news outlets don't spread this at all, I only discovered it on an Austrian news site. The implications being what they are for foreigners (making reselling anything you did not buy IN the USA, within the USA illegal, extending copy right term to infinity (never expires) and completely wiping out the First Sale Doctrine, and to top it all off, if a company wants infinite copyright it just has to produce the good outside the USA while being legally situated within, then it sells "imports" which if they are resold, are willful copyright violation $75k punishment per item). And with that, the legal system just has, without so much as a whimper, destroyed a primary pillar of economic freedom.

If you want to google more "Kirtsaeng" is the name of the student fined $600k by Wiley , but be warned, if you read this case up you might end up with some severe case of rage at the legal systems that be, and might even want to burn down Wiley

US courts just basically outlawed e-bay and every single sale of anything not bought in the USA, fucking retarded judges at 11. This judgement basically provides a perfect reason never to produce anything in the USA, even if you are an american company selling to Americans.

Invalidating the first sale doctrine.. fuck these bought judges. (not talking about any of these 2 articles, by the way..)
