|FreeMarket.com Virtual Content Store|
A few days after I've listened to Mitch Joel's SPOS Podcast Episode #211 where he "tackled the conversation over content and its value (re: pricing model) in our current society" among other things, an interesting announcement was made by Freelancer.com.
Freemarket.com is a virtual marketplace which offer virtual goods (hehe), such as images, graphics, music, and even programming code.
It takes paid content to a whole new level where people can independently purchase and sell these virtual goods. In my own opinion this is a great and logical step for the popular freelancing website where they could leverage their traffic.
