Media Storage Taxes Would you put up with them or fight for them to be removed? http://www.pocket-lint.co.uk/news.php?newsId=1174 http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/04/27/netherlands_ipod_tax/ Being called the "iPod Tax" the Netherlands are proposing a tax on all MP3 players up to 2.50 euro/gig. The money goes to artist/labels that are losing money to illegal downloading. That adds 120Euro to the 60gig iPod Photo. In a few years the tax on such items will outweigh the price on the device. I am not defending downloading, I just think it is silly to put such a tax on an item just because it could be used to use something that was illegally obtained. If anything the tax would make me want to download more, get my money's worth. I don't see this going over well.
