View Full Version : Reselling iPods with preloaded vids/lectures

I consult businesses for a living and have hundreds of instructional vids and lectures on my Mac all formatted for the Ipod. I have these vids and audio lectures on my own 60 gig and refer to them often. Currently members of my website must subscribe to view and listen to them. I was thinking of buying Ipods then loading my vids and lectures on them and reselling at a markup of course. My questions are.

1. Will the buyer be able to add their own content such as music or when they plug the ipod in to their mac will it only be linked with my Mac?

2. Is there a limit to the number of Ipods that I can transfer my own copyrighted material to from one Mac?

3. Will this idea even work? I am sure it would if there wasn't all that "This ipod associated with this Mac" or other restrictions but there really shouldn't be restrictions if it is my own material I am distributing.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It should be possible. In fact apple can do it for you: http://store.apple.com/AppleStore/WebObjects/BizCustom?qprm=78313&family=CorporateGifting

note: Content pre-loads require a 250-unit minimum order, as well as a $10 per unit loading fee.
