you can watch this really good docu about the TX SBOE deciding what to put in their textbooks Here.

it should make anyone with a brain cringe with disgust that this is possible.

Kanosh said:   Since when is it illegal to import a book?

It is illegal to import any item into USA (not just books) without the consent of the US IP (copyright or patent rights) holder. All US negotiated "free" trade agreements have a carve out allowing all countries to impose non-tariff trade-barriers to protect their IP rights. These laws are enforced in USA by US customs.

Without such laws anyone could bypass all US IP laws by manufacturing the product/book in some country where the IP holder forgot to file for a patent (or copyright) and import the product into USA.

No, you can't manufacture and import. Buying legitimate items, importing and reselling is different, so says SCOTUS.
