Cash for Your MP3 Tunes


Posted December 11, 2008 - By kijibe

More news to upset the music industry..

Who would've thought that someone would come up with a way to make money off of unwanted MP3s?

A start-up site called Bopaboo lets users set up their own mini store to upload music to sell for a profit.

The only type of songs you won't be allowed to sell are ones that are Digital Rights Management (DRM). So if you got a song off of iTunes, you can't sell it on Bopaboo, unless it was purchased off their iTunes Plus program.

It will even let you sell music that you copied from your best friend by Bopaboo's private beta invitation.

Bopaboo makes its money by retaining a percentage of your sales in exchange for this service.

I know you must be thinking the same thing I am: some industrious hustler is going to try and sell the same song over and over again.

Apparently, Bopaboo has the technology to prevent that. It will take a digital fingerprint of every uploaded file, a method comparable to Gracenote.

Would you use this site? Do services like this truly render the music business, as we currently know it, redundant?
