No I would say keep the levy. I know it has worked here in Canada, where we can legally download all the music we want because we compensate our the aritsts with our $0.25 per cd that is purchased. As long as we have that levy we know it is our government given right to download music and make legal copies of things that we already own. As soon as that right is taken away, the RIAA will have what they want, a complete stranglehold on everything music. How long until they decide to use those self killings discs on us so that we have to buy a new copy of whatever we buy every year just to continue to listen to them?
