I have a startup idea to resell music online through a webapp, and then ship it to the customer in a unique format.
It would work something like this:
- Customer selects some songs
- They pay a price, which consists of the licensing fee, our costs and our markup
- We custom-manufacture the physical media and record the purchased music onto it
- We ship it to the customer
Afterwards we would forward the license fee to the proper parties.
Does anyone know if there exists a way to purchase through itunes, or amazon, or some other provider through an API, and then if the rights can be transferred to someone else (from us to our customer), in another format (hard media)?
