Music swappers fined

On the BBC news website.

High Court judges ordered two men to pay the British Phonographic Industry between £1,500 and £5,000 for making thousands of songs available online.

What they did was wrong, but mabe the industry should also look at all the taxes we pay to compensate the music ‘theft’. We pay tax on cassettes, blank CD’s, blank DVD’s, recording equipment, VCR tapes, there was a proposal for a tax on mp3 players, when we walkinto a store with background music, etc. Somehow I get the feeling I’m paying more than once for my music.
