Digital music files are worth nothing - or so says a judge

Because a digital file has been ruled (in the states) to have no resale value I have stopped buying digital downloads. It makes no sense to buy something that instantly loses value as soon as you posses it. I had decided to stop buying CDs and buy digital downloads instead and of course keep buying vinyl. Now I think I will only buy vinyl and "rent music" from one of these streaming sites like RDIO. I am trying out their free trial right now. I guess it is like an expensive membership to a huge library - and the cost covers ease of service? Interesting to see how this will all pan out.
