Abstract:     
This article is a commentary on the Wiley v. Kirtsaeng case and its remarkable effects on technology and content distribution and control. Further, how an enterprising grad student's money-making idea led to a Supreme Court case with impacts for creators, publishers, manufacturers, retailers and entertainment conglomerates. To the extent that copyright-protected goods are in digital form, content creators and publishers face notable challenges to their legacy business models as control shifts to users and monetization shifts to distributors.
