Only problem with this is that a digital product doesn't degrade like a physical product does. You can't treat it the same because of that very reason. There would be no difference between a new copy and used copy at that point.

Hmmm, don't know that I really buy that argument. I can buy something brand new, decide I don't want it, and sell it. Nothing was degraded.

I would rather see some one develop a rental system for PC games than reintroducing a used or second hand market.

That's what digital sales are right now. You rent it forever for a one time fee of $60. You don't own it, so you can't resell it.
