If something is abundant it is not unique, and some things are essentially unique, like identity. What things are essentially unique? Can we do without essentially unique things, and if not, which kinds of essentially unique things are critical? /philosophy mode

Remind me what hinges on the question of what is unique? :P

A buyer can purchase a BitShare of a song, compensating the band in the process, for the sole reason that he will make money off it in the future.
I'm not following this point. If someone buys a song, do they also get shares in the artist?
I understand purchasing artist coins to make money off them in the future, but my understanding is that purchasing a download comes with no shareholding.
