"Finding the Limits of Exhaustion", Denver Law Review's Future World IP: Legal Responses to the Tech Revolution, Denver, CO, February 2016.
Under the first sale doctrine, intellectual property rights are exhausted after the authorized first sale of a product.

Moreover, as products increasingly cross national borders, exhaustion has taken on an international dimension. The panel will discuss how exhaustion law has evolved to date and its future.
