According to the news letter issued by international trade law firm, Danielo Desiderio on July 30, 2010, the 2008 CBP proposal to abolish the first sale rule will be formally withdrawn. This means the first sale rule will remain in place in the U.S.
This mechanism is indeed beneficial for U.S. importers allowing them to obtain substantial import duty savings, industries will welcome this decision.
Thanks, Danielo, for sharing useful information.
