Ownership or License? Where to Draw the Line on Copyright Infringement

30 06 2010

Most likely, Craig Vernor had no idea the firestorm he would create when he decided to put used copies of AutoCAD, a 3-D modeling software often used by architects, up for sale on E-Bay. He wanted to sell the $4,000 software (when new) for about $400 online. (Vernor’s actions on E-Bay are by no means the first of their kind. At present, E-Bay has 19 sub-categories of software for sale.)

Autodesk, the software’s creator and parent company, immediately demanded that the items be removed from E-Bay due to copyright infringement.
