High court steps into key online copyright case; Salt Lake Tribune via Associated Press, 4/16/12

Mark Sherman, Salt Lake Tribune; High court steps into key online copyright case:

"The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide a copyright case with important implications for the large and growing markets in discount and Internet sales...

The issue at the Supreme Court is whether U.S. copyright protection applies to items that are made abroad, purchased abroad and then resold in the U.S. without the permission of the manufacturer. The high court split 4-4 when it tried to answer that question in a case in 2010 involving Costco and Swiss watch maker Omega."
