Comment Re:First-Sale cuts both ways (Score 4, Informative) 509

This post clearly shows that someone doesn't understand either the First-sale doctrine or the reason why libraries can lend out books and movies for free. I suggest no one listen to the nonsense he put out. The rental company has no right under the First-sale doctrine to rent the person's video if they had no permission to do so. Since this rental company is also clearly not a library they are not covered under the same protections afforded to such institutions. The AC, if their claim is real, should use his status as the copyright owner to stop this violation of his rights.
