WASHINGTON D.C. -- A U.S. Supreme Court ruling is a sigh of relief for anyone in the second hand business.
It all all started with a man from Thailand. He bought textbooks overseas and sold them in America on eBay. The publishing company sued the man and the case made it to the top court in the country.
KY3 first told you about the case in October. From Della's Vintage in Springfield to normal, everyday moms using Craigslist to buy and sell items, there was a lot of worry about the outcome.
On Tuesday, in a 6-3 opinion, the Supreme Court ruled goods made and sold abroad can be resold online and in discount stores without violating copyright law.
