Capitol Records sued ReDigi, which allows individuals to sell pre-owned digital music files, and asked the court to prevent the company from offering its service.
So far, there is no final decision and the court asked both parties to submit a case management plan by February 20. However, it appears that there has been no compelling copyright infringement evidence against ReDigi and the judge appeared, at least initially, to side with argument that those who have ownership of digital goods have a right to sell them.
The company was clearly glad to have scored this victory and said that "Capitol’s disregard for the process of ReDigi’s advanced technology, which clearly works within the parameters of the law, has drawn the ire of both consumers and industry leaders such as Google, which petitioned the courts for permission to file its own brief in the case."
CEO John Ossenmacher said that he hopes that "Capitol can get back to their business and find a way to catch up to the times instead of trying to stop the innovation process, denying rights to their paying customers along the way.” ReDigi noted that it enables "consumers to exercise their ownership rights lawfully, observing and preserving the legitimate rights of the artists and labels in their copyrighted music."
it sick me to read this kind of article.
Good thing ReDigi won the case.
Good thing the Plaintiff lose the case also
Not according to the major game companies...
Exactly. But once you're dealing with digital downloads, are you sure you bought it, or did you just rent it?
That's where they will get you....
the owners(musicians and distributors) of the songs dont get any of the money and they are selling it to you. Its just as I said, selling pirated music and they are ripping you a new one. first, anyone who falls for this is stupid, and this service should not even exist.
One of the reasons I still buy books and not bytes.
EULAs aren't enforceable in court.
Imagine not being able to sell your used car!
