Last January, Capitol Records sued MP3 reseller startup ReDigi, which calls itself ”the world’s first preowned digital marketplace.” Capitol Records’ claim? By letting people resell their MP3s, ReDigi was facilitating the unauthorized reproduction of copyrighted works.
This weekend a judge sided with Capitol Records.
What it Means for You:
While you can sell your old mixtapes or DVDs or CDs or soul, don’t expect to be able to resell MP3s anytime soon. I guess you’ll just have to ‘give them away to charity’.
