Hot on the heels of this morning's Wonder of Copy Crippling post: NEWS.com.au | Blank CD levy could 'pay artists' (June 15, 2004). Please, please, please can we make this stupid fucking idea go away. Blank CDs are used for many things, music being just one. Why the fuck should the record industry get money from me so that I can back up my digital photos and other data?
Besides that, if you believe that artists will get a single cent out of the deal; you shouldn't be allowed out of the house without adult supervision.
