A Startup Asks: Why Can’t You Resell Old Digital Songs? – Technology Review.

This piece offers a profile on start-up called ReDigi which applies a novel system to  allow its customers to “resell” digital music. Using digital fingerprinting technology, ReDigi’s user download software which verifies (a) that the music the user is seeking to sell is a legitimately purchased track and (b) that the file is erased not only form the user’s computer but also from all synced devices.
