US District Court: Users can't legally resell iTunes songs
US District Judge Richard Sullivan ruled in favor of Universal Music Group in a case involving the resale of songs bought on iTunes, reports AllThingsD. UMG filed the suits against startup ReDigi, a service that lets users resell their music library.
In a judgment filed over the weekend, Judge Sullivan shot down the multiple arguments ReDigi used to defend its practice of reselling songs. Sullivan said in his decision that consumers can't sell their music library without consent from the copyright owners. This kills the practice as large music companies like Universal are not likely to approve the reselling of music anytime soon.
