Selling second hand consumer electronics goods is a pretty common and somewhat lucrative trade to engage in. For the seller, he gets extra funds for his future purchase. For the buyer, he gets a used but still working product at a price he can afford. A win-win situation that is not shared by electronics manufacturers. As a result, effective April 1, 2006, ALL electronics products manufactured prior to 2001 will no longer be allowed to be sold in the second hand market.
