Reselling your stuff make become illegal thanks to the Federal Court and the Supreme Court

Read about the case here, click 
Are you in?  More than 3,000 sites -- including prominent allies like the Electronic Frontier Foundation -- have signed up to take part in today's day of action. The Supreme Court is hearing that case that will decide if you have the right to resell the things you own.
Ebay, Craigslist, and even the old-fashioned garage sale are under threat.
Sites will be using our ribbons and ball-and-chain icons to sound the alarm about the Kirtsaeng vs John Wiley & Sons case:
The Supreme Court might side with Big Business and decide that you don't have the right to resell things that were made abroad: books, clothes, iPhones -- almost anything.
If you're planning to take part, please click here to grab the code for one of those icons, and post it on your site! (And maybe write up a blurb about why you're taking a stand.)
Here's what it'll look like:

We expect to have a legislative fight on our hands come winter, no matter how the Supreme Court rules.  So we want to drive thousands of emails to lawmakers before Big Business sics its brigade of lobbyists on them.
Whether or not you're posting on your site, will you spread word to your friends -- and especially anybody who you know who sells things online?
