Adobe Systems v. Christenson, 12-17371

In a copyright action, the district court's grant of summary judgment to defendants is affirmed and the court held that a party raising a first sale defense to copyright infringement bears an initial burden with respect to the defense which, once met, shifts the burden back to the copyright owner to establish absence of a first sale.
