Lemma 33.44.13. Let $k$ be a field. Let $X$ be a proper scheme over $k$ which is reduced, connected, and equidimensional of dimension $1$. Let $\mathcal{L}$ be an invertible $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. If $\deg (\mathcal{L}|_ C) \leq 0$ for all irreducible components $C$ of $X$, then either $H^0(X, \mathcal{L}) = 0$ or $\mathcal{L} \cong \mathcal{O}_ X$.

**Proof.**
Let $s \in H^0(X, \mathcal{L})$ be nonzero. Since $X$ is reduced there exists an irreducible component $C$ of $X$ with $s|_ C \not= 0$. But if $s|_ C$ is nonzero, then $s$ is nonwhere vanishing on $C$ by Lemma 33.44.12. This in turn implies $s$ is nowhere vanishing on every irreducible component of $X$ meeting $C$. Since $X$ is connected, we conclude that $s$ vanishes nowhere and the lemma follows.
