Of couse it is not a crime to sell used tickets. To wit:

You know the saying, “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” It’s an
axiom that Dennis Morse and nearly 900 other people around the U.S.
apparently take to heart.

Morse is a collector. He collects a lot of things but is most passionate
about one thing in particular: used scratch-off lottery tickets."

Nothing prevents Autodesk from implementing the DRM based scheme that
would make copies unfunctional after upgrade activation. It would still
be not a crime to sell deactivated copies under first sale. A researcher
may well be interested to buy such a copy and attempt to break the DRM
scheme to tell Autodesk that the scheme is not reliable. And it *would*
be a crime to break the DRM scheme (and sell copies with broken DRM)
allowing use of deactivated software after upgrade. That is precisely
what DMCA is about.

But instead of gently pointing out to Autodesk the right solution to
their problem, the imbeciles in the 9th Cir. has created utterly idiotic
anti first sale "legal test." The people of the 9th Cir. shall impeach
sillies in robes.
