    Hey who know maybe mip's scan will receive some of those dues since no one is paying for the podcasts!

    In most forms of taxation, the user-payer scheme makes so much more sense, including this one. If they want to discourage music... I mean stealing, having a tax on the songs makes more sense, although it would be next-to-impossible for our government to collect, and once again they would be stuck taxing the most legitimate users/purchasers while most likely tax-dodgers would easily buy the music from outside the jurisdiction.

    The first comment I made can be looked at like a tax on pollution... you could add a 10% tax on heavy polluting cars, or you could simply add a tax on gasoline, which would work as a disincentive on using the gas, but would not be a problem for those who just like to park their hummer on the lawn to show off.
