"Notable for its portrayal of Gilmore and the anguish generated by the murders he committed, the book was central to the national debate over the revival of capital punishment by the Supreme Court. Gilmore was the first person to be executed in the United States since the re-instatement of the death penalty in 1976."
Maybe they wanted to vote down someone who'd admitted giving money to a company that publishes neo Nazi propaganda.
You were the one who thought it appropriate to include neo Nazi propaganda in a thread on literature. Haven't you read any other books?
I didn't vote you down btw.
It's not exactly a surprise though is it? If you're a Nazi it's a happy ending, if you're not it isn't.
When public libraries loan out books royalties are paid to the author. It's called PLR.
Our libraries don't stock neo Nazi propaganda, that might be why we don't have as much of a problem with them.
The first-sale doctrine is a legal concept playing an important role in U.S. copyright and trademark law by limiting certain rights of a copyright or trademark owner. The doctrine enables the distribution chain of copyrighted products, library lending, giving, video rentals and secondary markets for copyrighted works (for example, enabling individuals to sell their legally purchased books or CDs to others). In trademark law, this same doctrine enables reselling of trademarked products after the trademark holder put the products on the market. The doctrine is also referred to as the "right of first sale," "first sale rule," or "exhaustion rule."
The first-sale doctrine is one of the limitations and exceptions to copyright.
