Supreme Court Could Make Resale Illegal, Pawn Stars Crankier Than Usual

February 14, 2013

A case before the Supreme Court involving imported textbooks sold on eBay could have a significant impact on how goods are sold, and could put an end to all resale, including popular web sites like eBay and Overstock.com. The case under consideration is Wiley v. Kirtsaeng, in which textbook publisher John Wiley and Sons sued Supap Kirtsaeng over the business Kirtsaeng ran selling imported textbooks on eBay.

The reason this case could have such broad implications is that it involves one of the primary limitations on copyright protections.

Based on copyright laws Supreme Court could put an end to Ebay, Craigslist, Overstock.com. Pawn Stars crankier than usual.

Obama Honors Indonesian Veterans In New History Channel Movie

November 11, 2010

WASHINGTON — Today is Veterans Day. Do you know where your president is?

With his feeble flame of “hope” thoroughly doused here in the United States by last week’s elections, President Obama has set out around the globe in search of throngs still enthralled by his flowery rhetoric.He found them, of course, in Indonesia this week by telling them about how Americans must stop mistrusting Islam.

Not that Obama doesn’t appreciate the sacrifices of veterans. He absolutely does. Just ask the Indonesians.

He was in Jakarta for their Heroes Day this week to honor their veterans “who have sacrificed on behalf of this great country.””This great country,” of course, being Indonesia.

“When my stepfather was a boy, he watched his own father and older brother leave home to fight and die in the struggle for Indonesian independence,” Obama told the audience.
