That doesn't make sense...

The industry knows about the longevity of a CD - ergo the overall pricing structure which exists caters for that. Also, since person A who sells their second hand CD no longer has access to it, the total number of people deriving benefit from the copyright remains unchanged. It couldn't be more different than Napster. In fact this is where the industry has some explaining to do, since copyright and (music) production costs have already been "covered" from original sales, it should be possible to trade in one's old LPs (if you like that sort of thing) for a CD re-issue at a much lower price, or a second hand CD... but the industry wouldn't allow that ....
