"He wasn’t buying individual books for his own use and then reselling them, he was buying by the case with the intent to immediately resell for profit."

So?

Its none of the Gub'ments business if I buy and sell items and make a profit except for taxes I owe.

If he didn't pay his taxes then fine hi,. but having a Constitutional challenge on first sale rights so "Big Publishing" can keep their text book monopoly was not the original intent established by the founding fathers when they wrote the Constitution.

"Big Media" and "Big Publishing" have lobbied Congress with hundreds of millions of dollars until they've got the copyright laws fixed where they can fleece the public over and over. Now they have this back-handed Constitutional challenge that if it is upheld will remove the right of consumers to re-sell their legally bought goods without ponying up more cash to the Copyright Mafia.

They can all kiss my ass.

I agree with you. Nonetheless, that’s how this system works.
