Hofstra Law Review


Addie T. Katz


The article discusses several aspects of international copyright infringement in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in the 2013 copyright infringement case Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons Inc. which deals with a student-run business which sold imported foreign-made textbooks to customers in America. Intellectual property rights in places such as the U.S. are examined, along with the laws governing gray market goods and the responsibilities of U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency.
