Jeebus H... Now people will be 'pirates' selling what they own. I guess they'll force me to be just that then.

Or, maybe I'll make them pay me to buy their product. Fug 'em.

Then just give your used stuff away. If giving it away on Ebay, charge extra for shipping just like a lot of people are doing now to reduce their listing/selling fees.

If I were the court I would tell the company to 'stick it'. IF the company doesn't want someone buying in another country and sell it here, they should raise the price overseas.

Otherwise what will we see, police raids on flea markets? Garage sales?

But enforcing this would be like the State/Feds trying to collect sales tax on a garage sale.

eBay started charging final value fees on shipping fees. They're onto this game already.

This would be near impossible to enforce if the court ruled in favor of the corporates.

They would have to tackle.. Ebay, Craigslist, newspaper classifieds, individual websites, those papers stapled to telephone poles, for sale signs in car windows..

Nice article..LOL. Over protection from our communist neighbours to the south.

It's not like this will help bring back production to the USA, which this seems to be their attempt. Are people willing to pay 10 times as much for their iPhone? No...

You're talking about Apple fanboys now. I bet they would be willing to pay 10 times more for anything with an apple sticker on it.

I am a bit of a fanboy but would never pay more than what I pay now, what I pay is the max I am willing to pay. Still on the iPhone 4...
