Comments on Hector Postigo's: The Digital Rights Movement:
First sale and transmission rights are already codified as "exclusive" rights. Some have argued section 106 - 117 of the copyright code as "exceptions" to the "exclusive" rights and therefore not subject to section 408 rights to register "any" exclusive right. The key to the movement in the US will be standing to sue the US Copyright Office for registration of digital ownership. Http://www.circlesection.com
