Right to resell downloaded music challenged in US court

Must remember to keep an eye on this court case. According to ‘The Tech Report’, Redigi is a company that makes money as a middleman re-selling iTunes music and Capitol records is suing them for it. I’m hoping ReDigi wins this case. Honest question, why should Artists or record companies make money of the re-sale of music? You don’t give Ford a cut when you sell your old car, why should artists or record companies get payed twice or even more?

Copyright NEEDS to change.

What is amateurism and is it really important?

The Atlantic has a new article from Taylor Branch that every college sports fan should read in it’s entirety, “The Shame of College Sports“. He points out some pretty damming things about the NCAA, and how college athletes are treated.

His finish is something that could make for an interesting topic all on it’s own. What is amateurism and is it really important? If so important to whom and why? The Olympics got rid of it’s amateur requirements and the world didn’t end. Would it matter to college sports?
