eBooks are increasingly being thought of as works in progress.

Supap Kirtsaeng, who originally came to the United States from Thailand as a student in 1997, built a business around this arbitrage opportunity, asking family members in Thailand to legally purchase textbooks and ship them to the United States, where he then resold them for a profit on sites such as eBay. In September 2008, publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. filed a complaint in a New York federal district court asserting, among other things, that Kirtsaeng’s actions constituted copyright infringement. A jury agreed, imposing damages of $75,000 for each infringed work. Kirtsaeng appealed to the Second Circuit, which affirmed the district court’s decision, and then to the Supreme Court, which will hear oral arguments on October 29.
