Digital content reselling may seem like an oxymoron, but technology and legal developments may soon make the reselling of digital content of all types, audio, video and apps, easier than putting something on eBay. Amazon and Apple have both filed patents for the digital swap meets of the future.

Most of the digital content we download to our myriad electronic devices, smart phones, tablets and PCs, cannot be sold or transferred to anyone else. Unlike a good old fashioned book or CD, users are pretty much stuck with the digital content they “own”, forever. Since digital content never degrades, digital content providers such as music, video and software producers insisted on this provision as a condition of digital distribution.
