ReDigi To Launch Legal Online Digital Record Swap Meet
February 17, 2011 at 11:39 AM (PT)
A marketplace For consumers to legally sell their digital music files and buy others people’s used music at a fraction of the price is about to become a reality. REDIGI, purported to be the world’s first online marketplace to legally recycle, buy and sell, used digital music files, is based on the structure of a used record store where music lovers traded in their old records and CDs, flipped through the bins in search of that amazing album traded in by someone else.
"The typical listener regularly uses only about 20% of the music in their libraries. The balance represents a lot of money and disk space being tied up on their computers and mobile devices," REDIGI CEO JOHN OSSENMACHER said. "With the legal issues involved in the selling and sharing of digital music, people have been stuck with their unwanted tunes, or forced to delete them in order to free space. REDIGI is the answer to that problem; REDIGI provides the digital marketplace to resell unwanted music and acquire desired music, in perfect condition."
Along with giving users the power to recycle their digital music files, the REDIGI Marketplace also aims to help strengthen the music industry through the REDIGI FOUNDATION program, which grants a share of proceeds from all music sales to both artists and record labels each and every time a track resells.
"REDIGI is about empowering music lovers," OSSENMACHER explained. "In an age where technology gives us so many new freedoms, REDIGI will give users the freedom to fully take ownership of their music, and to provide the artists and music industry another revenue stream so they can keep producing the tunes we love so much."
Beginning today, REDIGI will be accepting requests to be part of its exclusive preview group. to request an invitation before REDIGI’s summer launch, please visit www.redigi.com.
