Digital media purchases have become more common in the current time we live, however there is a huge disadvantage we put ourselves against when we make dgital purchases instead of hard copy purchases.
Advantages of Buying Hard Copy items.
If the item is defective you can always get a refund or a replacement product.
After using the item for a period of time you can sell it to someone who needs it.
You may be able to make duplicates of the purchased item depending on the format of the item.
Disadvantages of buying digital items
Refunds are not offered on digitally purchased products because they are not tangible.
Digitally Purchased products are more susceptible to accidental deletion.
Sharing digital media is in most cases impossible.
