The right to distribute authorized copies is statutory. See 17 USC 109
 (it is commonly called "first sale", but the actual parameters of the
rule are specified in the statute and not some lay reading of "first",
"sale", or even "first sale"). Over here in the EU, that statutory
doctrine is known as "copyright exhaustion".
