Joe Gratz Speaks to National Association of Recording Merchandisers on Digital First Sale

October 13, 2010

Joe Gratz participated in a panel which debated the issue of the first sale doctrine as represented by three recent court cases recently consolidated by the Ninth Circuit.  At issue: are the purchasers of software owners or simply licensees?  Also participating on the panel were Christian Genetski of Zwillinger Genetski, LLP, Corynne McSherry, Staff Attorney and Kahle Promise Fellow, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Clara Shin of Howard Rice, and Gary Greenstein of Wilson Sonsini.
