Here Come The Lawsuits

Posted on Friday, December 5 @ 18:22:02 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
It's becoming increasingly obvious that current patent and copyright law are out of touch with the digital age. Until the inevitable lawsuit, this site looks to use a loophole to allow you to get back some of the money you lost when you drunkenly decided to buy that K-Fed single.

Yes, bopaboo.com seeks to become the Ebay of used MP3's. Can an MP3 really be used?

So here's how it works:

1- You upload the legally downloaded songs you don't want anymore.
2- You delete your copy. Really. You promise.
3- When your music sells (for cheaper than iTunes), you get a cut and bopaboo gets a cut.

Of course this raises a billion new questions (forget about the potential for fraud and abuse). Is it legal to sell your used MP3 player full of music? Do you own it or does the MP3 player?

How about your Xbox 360? Can you sell that on craigslist with Castle Crashers still on the drive? Or how about if you're just done with Castle Crashers? Should you be able to sell your digital copy to someone else? Because it is legal to sell your used Gears of War disc.
 
All I know is that it's the lawyers who are going to win until the laws are changed to reflect the current day and age.
