The technological advance we have witnessed since, at least, the establishment of the internet as the main form of communication between people, organizations and companies, has been making possible a panoply of content and services which, day by day, seems to be infinite. The development of contents protected by copyright is not at all alien to this reality. The way to do more and to do it differently has become an indispensable element in the world of culture. The question of the exhaustion of copyright after the first sale is, indeed, a pressing issue regarding the necessary solution for the European market, as far as copyright is concerned, and has not been the object of a unanimous and exact response at a jurisprudential a legislative level. The present dissertation aims to study two of the main judgments concerning this matter. With this we expect to be able to present new visions on this problematic, on a matter whose discussion is still in a very embryonic stage.
