Did you read that full article explaining what's going on? This concerns products made and authorized for sale only in another country., like if you choose to pick up an MP3 player while you're visiting Hong Kong since it's a bit cheaper than it is at home, and then you try to resell it a few years later after you've replaced it. It's not going to make selling any used Nintendo device illegal, it's going to make selling an imported Nintendo device illegal. If you import an EU 3DS and then try to sell it down the line, that's where you could run into trouble.

It's still going to impact many of us who choose to import items from other countries for our homes and daily lives, and I don't think it's going to hold water in court down the line when some judge realizes he can't legally sell his mansion with its imported-from-Italy fixtures and such without getting permission from the copyright holders for said fixtures. but it's not going to put a fork in GameStop or Best Buy's used device sales by any means, and it has no bearing on your average everyday iPod or smartphone. I'd say the antiques world is going to be the ones in real trouble if that passes and people actually start enforcing it.

It does make me wonder how they are going to enforce it

If you care so much for your privacy, what are you hiding?

I don't think this will happen and if it does they technically can't count all the turned in ones already. I usually don't trade systems in anyway so this won't affect me.

@all, glad to see the ruling like such. Nintendo Life should make a message about this issue and the ruling. Anyway, there was a question about if this ruling would affect only products that were made and sold (originally) outside the US. That is NOT true. The court case being discussed, the textbooks that were imported by the first-buyer/second-hand-seller were also available as exactly the same, in the US. They were just marked up greatly due to the "US being rich" idea that a lot of countries have. This individual was just finding a textbook at about 40% (I think) the price of it in the US and then selling it in the US for more than that 40% but a low enough amount that he ended up with over $900k profit.

It would be the exact same thing as if I went to China or Japan and bought DSLites brand new at $40 (US Dollars) and then resold these sealed boxes on Ebay for $60 US. (And currently GameStop has a USED DSLite going for $80.

Essentially, YES any item made outside the US, even ones sold inside the US, would be subjected to this decision. But we do not need to worry now because the Supreme Court thought rationally for once...

Are you trying to say that emergency NESectomy I had when I was 15 was some kind of hoax?!
the doctor said it wasn't working right and needed to go... or maybe that was just my parents, i don't remember :(

Don't worry; it's been upheld by the Supreme Court. Feel free to re-sell as you like.

Exactly.
