Trademark law is what has been used to restrict grey imports in the EU, in that the courts have ruled that the trademark holder has the right to control distribution.
That omega costco case sounded a bit weird, omega placed a small design on the back of the watch so that the watch would be copyrighted and so that costco would not be legally able to sell the watch in the U.S. If someone can explain that better please go ahead.
If all this Kirtsaeng case does is make the publishers set a global price for their goods, well that would be a bit upsetting but we still have the redigi case to look forward to.
Some librarians are going to talk about it tomorrow lol,
