The Supreme Court is hearing a case TODAY that will decide if you have the right to resell the things you own.
Ebay, Craigslist, and even the old-fashioned garage sale are under threat.
The Supreme Court might side with Big Business and decide that you don’t have the right to resell things that were made abroad: books, clothes, iPhones — almost anything.
We expect to have a legislative fight on our hands come winter, no matter how the Supreme Court rules. So we want to drive thousands of emails to lawmakers before Big Business sics its brigade of lobbyists on them.
If we lose this fight, practically anybody who wants to resell products they bought — from Macbooks and iPhones to our clothing and textbooks — will have to ask copyright holders for permission first. And they’ll have the right to deny it!
The forces that lined up in support of SOPA — Hollywood, the recording industry, and other huge corporations — are urging the Court to rule against consumers.
