He who pays the piper

With news reported elsewhere in this edition that the Spanish government are introducing new taxes on CD-Roms, MP3 and MP4 players and USB memory sticks or pens to offset the losses to the music industry of revenues lost as a result of copying, we decided to find out whether you think you should be asked, in a way, to pay for the copy cats.

We are totally against it.  We think that there are many artists who became famous because people did download their music from the net. Perhaps nobody would ever have known them or bought a CD. When people do know who they are they make money, because they are selling more tickets for concerts or people might even buy CDs. For many artists and us­ers the internet is a chance to become famous.
