Default thinking of selling SFX libraries

I have pondered the idea of becoming a distributer for the major SFX libraries and creating an online store to sell them.

I would plan to carry the major libraries:

hollywood edge

My question is this. Do any of you buy these libraries anymore and if so who do you buy them from. Do you go strait to the source i.e.. hollywood edge and buy them direct or from a reseller?

I work in a post house and have seen a lot of younger sound designers /editors freely trade the stock libraries amongst themselves as they often fit on one hard drive that is easily duplicated. I wonder if the days of buying the libraries on CD are coming to and end? Also, are there any possible emerging global markets that would require the purchase of sfx libraries (bollywood, china, games, etc)

Just wondering what your thoughts are.
