And nothing I wrote suggests that either.  Try focusing.

The problem was that CTA sold the media for the _original_ versions
after obtaining upgrades to them that were licensed under condition that
the _original_ media were being destroyed.

Now if CTA had acquired new full versions rather than upgrades, the case
would have been different, and first sale rights would likely have
applied.  Certainly likely enough that Autodesk has been very careful to
state the upgrade discount and its conditions and license agreements,
and the court has been very careful to repeat them.

This is very clearly very relevant to what the case is about.
