Free Zune re-downloads

Microsoft has announced that to a certain extent, files from the Zune Marketplace will be re-downloadable at no extra cost. Gizmodo notes that songs and videos will be downloadable up to five times past the initial point of purchase. This should ensure that if an initial download fails, or an existing copy is lost, users will still to able to receive their content. This has been one of the key complaints about the iTunes Music Store, which (with rare exceptions) only allows one-time downloads. Past customers have had to speak to Apple technical support in order to secure second copies. The Zune and the Zune Marketplace launch on November 14th.
