Collectors and music fans, take note: songwriters can now sell the rights to their songs through SongVest, a new online music auction provider.

SongVest is auctioning some pretty big names in October, including Aerosmith, Carrie Underwood and Cher and takes a 25% to 40% commission on each sale. If SongVest turns out a success, expect more similar businesses to begin cropping up.
