A Market For Used MP3s… Or A Parody To Prove A Point?
from the this-can't-be-serious dept
ChurchHatesTucker was the first of a few readers to send in the news about a new website claiming to have set up an online system for selling “used” or secondhand MP3s. The whole idea, of course, is fairly ridiculous, which leads me (and CHT) to believe that this is more making a statement to show just how silly it is whenever recording industry types try to treat digital copies as if they were physical objects, or declare that “downloading an MP3 is no different than walking out of a shop with a CD you haven’t paid for.” If so, bravo for the satire. If, however, this actually is real, I imagine it will survive all of about a day, before it gets shut down.
