CD batering a la net flicks

About: unmediated: Live or Die by the Quality of Your Metadata

I don't know if this is the way la la does it ... but why not have "everybody" send in their used CD's to a central barter pool.  Then you publish from that pool.  You can get as many back as you send in less the fee of course; and unlike netflicks you don't need to return the CD. 

Fee structure would be:

Charge:  your squeeze + postage + something for the artist .... afterall we don't want to steal music.  

Point is how many CD sit idel in some dusty collection ... keep those CD's moving. And if you pay the artist, probably more than they get from the record label, everybody wins ... err except the established music industry.

Actually that would not be much different than what la la is doing ...
