Should companies be allowed to prevent resale of products you purchase?
jackson 1 year ago
Google has made it known loud and clear that if you are one of the people "selected" to spend $1500 on Google Glass, you can't resell them, or apparently even loan them out, without risking having them bricked by Google. There is a book publisher that has a case in front of the Supreme Court that claims people can't legally resale items that are made in another country in the US. Is this a reasonable position for companies to take? I mean, sure they spent money on R&D, printing, etc., but it seems that if I purchase something it is mine, and I should be able to do whatever I want with it.
