Federal judge rules that used digital items cannot be sold by consumers

“Finished with that digital copy of “The Help” on your Kindle and hoping to sell it somewhere else? Sorry – e-books being sold used may not be legal just yet. ReDigi, a start-up based in Massachusetts which allows users to resell digital music on their site, was told by a federal judge that Capitol Records’ rights are violated by such a practice. The company is planning to allow consumers to sell used e-books this summer. ReDigi has been in existence since 2011 and was planning an overhaul late this summer to begin emphasizing e-book content.” (via CSMonitor.com)
