Why: The United States House of Representatives' Committee on the Judiciary's Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet is holding a hearing on "First Sale Under Title 17." The First Sale Doctrine, long ago approved by the United States Supreme Court, provides consumers with the freedom to create a secondary market once a work has been legally purchased from the copyright holder (such as selling legally purchased books or CDs to others). With the introduction of digital media, a debate has surfaced about how to treat digital assets, such as digital books and music.
