The “'''first sale'''” doctrine plays an important role in [[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, gifting, video rentals and secondary markets for copyrighted works. It enables one to sell their legally purchased books or CDs on eBay. 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."
