I cannot fully comprehend a part of the following sentence:
Except in the United States of America, this book is sold subject to the condition that it shall not, by way of trade or otherwise, be lent, re-sold, hired out, or otherwise circulated without the publisher's prior consent in any form of binding or cover other than that in which it is published and without a similar condition including this condition being imposed on the subsequent purchaser.
I understand the most of it but the bold part is a bit confusing. What does it mean exactly? Does it mean that the condition cannot be altered?
