Canadian Music Industry Seeks Copy Tax On Memory Cards

Postby Ceil » 15 May 2011, 15:42

"The Canadian music industry's copyright collective is demanding the creation of a new copying tax on all memory cards sold in Canada. The Canadian Private Copying Collective has filed for a tax of up to $3 per memory card to compensate for music copying on SD cards. If approved, the tax could cost consumers millions of dollars."
Makes no less sense than the current levy exacted on blank CDs and audiotapes in Canada — and no more sense, either.
