Iíve seen some other limited releases suffering the same fate and imagine it will be happening in other genres too, itís essentially what has ruined Record.Store Day for a lot of people.
I donít think anyone begrudges someone making a profit or coming up lucky on a big find, itís the greed and the fact that those buying six copies stop other fans from buying their copy, plus I think itís the number of people doing it, itís not just one or two people, Iíve seen numerous fools on IG flossing their 6 copies of the latest Daupe.
Itís unhealthy for labels too, letís take Daupe as an example (their ears must be burning!) they may now think they have a fan base that will buy 1000 copies of their releases but when the hype blows over they could end up massively over estimating their market share.
