Exclamation Amazon wins patent for selling "Used" digital content (including ebooks!)

From here:
Amazon has won a patent to create a virtual marketplace where users could resell digital content like apps, songs and ebooks. But itís unclear whether such a marketplace would be legal under current copyright law.
What this means is that if someone downloads your book, they could use this marketplace to re-sell it to someone else, money for this going to them rather than to you in the process--just like reselling a used paperback at a flea market.
