Essentially, the argument is that the first-sale doctrine only applies to goods produced in the US.Irrational argument.If an item may be expected to be resold by the buyer in the future, the seller has an obligation to notify the buyer that such a sale would not be legal--and the price reduced dramatically as a result.Apple would be in deep trouble, for example. Many consumers of their new products *expect* to resell their now-obsolete products. Inability of the consumer to resell a purchased item that is reasonably usable would kill sales of all new products because consumers would require purchase prices that reflected an immediate resale price of $0.I don't see it happening. Then again, I could use a new car for $2500 (with full warranty).
