It should be noted that the case in question deals only with the US, only with physical copyrighted objects imported into the US, and only with the question of whether the right of first sale applies to all such imported goods (regardless of where they were produced), or only to goods produced in the US, then exported, then re-imported.
Mind you, when I say "only", it has the potential to shut down all those businesses which import "grey goods" if they are subject to copyright - eg, obviously books and music, but perhaps less obviously high-class jewellery and perfumes, etc.
