Advance reading copies of books

ARC's are advance reading copies of books (also termed uncorrected proofs, galley proofs, bound proofs, advance reader's edition, etc.) are distributed gratis by publishers to reviewers and others before the official publication date of a book.  
Many of these find their way to the secondary market, where they are purchased by readers, collectors and others. As legally produced copies, the First Sale Doctrine applies. Some authors and publishers, however, have attempted to interfere with such sales.
Considerable searching has produced very little information on the application of the First Sale Doctrine to ARC's. Can anyone cite any resources?
