This is real, hubbers! Amazon has won the right to a patent to create a virtual marketplace where users could resell digital content like apps, songs and ebooks.

I've never had a hub go viral, so I have no idea what I'm talking about. All that qualifies me is that I regularly share and read "viral" material. As we look at alternatives to Google for traffic,...
