Libraries in the United States believe that copyright restrictions threaten the lending right of paper books

in recent years, libraries are frequently prohibited from purchasing and lending e-books. However, according to a filing opinion statement of the U.S. Supreme Court on July 3, the right of libraries to borrow paper books is also under threat

this opinion statement is related to the final judgment of the second circuit court of appeals on the case of kirtsaeng and John Wiley publishing company in 2011, which is based on the principle of first sale. This provision of the copyright law allows buyers of any legal copy of a book or other copyrighted work to resell or borrow the copy they have purchased, but this provision is limited to goods produced in the United States. The library community said that if the ruling upheld the original judgment, the result of the judgment might cause the library to lose the lending right of non-native books

in this statement, 7. Control of experimental methods: computer-controlled corrosion resistance outstanding experimental process library copyright alliance, an alliance composed of three major library institutions (ALA, ARL and ACRL), requires the Supreme Court to choose pp/epdm T15 or pp/epdm-t20 rescind the ruling of the second circuit court and determine that the first sale principle applies to all copies of books made and published under the lawful authorization of the U.S. copyright owner of the work

in a recent interview with publisher weekly, jonthanband, the lawyer responsible for writing the LCA indictment, said that a ruling in favor of the second circuit court's interpretation of the first sale terms would be a fatal blow to the library community, because it would mean that libraries would not be able to borrow books printed abroad. Not only those books from foreign publishers, bond explained, but also those published in the United States but only printed overseas. The LCA statement also emphasizes that a very important part of the collection resources of American libraries are produced overseas. Among the books collected by American libraries, more than 200million books are published by foreign publishers

the court case of the Supreme Court originates from the final judgment in the case of John Wiley publishing company and supap kirtsaeng. In this case, kirtsaeng, a Thai born American student, was sued by Willie publishing company for importing and reselling overseas textbooks specially produced and sold by Willie in the American market. In the judgment of this case, the jury of the second circuit court composed of three judges finally determined by a 2:1 advantage that kirtsaeng could not be exempted from the provisions of the first sale principle, because the words in the provisions must be legally made products. The court ruled that the phrase "legal production" limits the application of the first sale principle to those works made in the areas where the Copyright Act applies according to the "1015" plan, and it does not apply to works made abroad
