: I recently purchased an expensive real estate seminar (manual and tapes) used on ebay. Despite being used, it still cost nearly $300. I found myself wishing Blockbuster Video rented these courses. Then it occurred to me that maybe I could rent them. My Dad (not a lawyer) seems to think it might infringe on the real estate gurus' copyrights to rent the courses, so I had another idea... What if I sell the used course (just like it was sold to me) with an agreement to by it back within 30 days for $50 less than the price I sold it for. Would this still be a violation of copyright?
: Thanks for your time and attention.
