It could be your personal electronic devices (like your iPod Gen 2 you’re selling to get an iPad) or the family jewels that have been passed down from your great-grandparents who immigrated from Spain. It could be a book that was written by an American writer but printed and bound overseas, or your old school textbooks.

A little known case stuck into the Supreme Court’s load this fall will decide if you’re allowed to sell your own stuff. Think of how this will affect you: eBay, Amazon Marketplace, yard and garage sales, flea markets, used book stores…you’ll suddenly not be able to recoup costs and eventually you’ll be only able to pay full price as set by the makers of a product.
