I am a bookseller on eBay. I recently purchased an art book from a distributor. I decided to cut up the book to try and sell the individual pages. The publisher of the book found these listings on eBay and informed me that I was in violation of the book's copyright. Even though I did not copy or make any duplicates of the book's content, the publisher contacted eBay and within 24 hours eBay removed the listings. Aren't my actions protected by the first sale doctrine? Is it against copyright law to cut up a legally purchased book and resell the individual pages? Does the publisher have the legal right to decide how I sell the book?
