+ - GameStop sued over lack of DLC for used games->

I have the right to take it or leave it if I don't find your price fair (same goes for the main game). But what about the used game market? Should publishers be allowed to destroy the used market for their games by including "free" DLC with a one-time use code? Should the copyright doctrine of "first-sale" have any effect here? Or is it up to the consumer (frequently children) to realize that the product will have a reduced resale value due to the one-time nature of the DLC code? Is this any different from the use of unique "CD-Keys" that are required for online play (e.g. for Blizzard games since 1997 or earlier)."
