I bought a book from local vendor who buy books from foreign countries and then re-sell them. Book publisher name is Penguin
On the book, The following has been written:
Except in the United States of America, this book is sold subject to the condition that it shall not, by way of trade or otherwise, be lent, re-sold, hired out, or otherwise circulated without the publisher's prior consent in any form of binding or cover other than that in which it is published and without a similar condition including this condition being imposed upon the subsequent purchaser.
My query is, what does this mean actually ? Re-selling is not allowed over here ?
