Price of recordable CDs will go up
The Canadian Coalition for Fair Digital Access (CCFDA) is an umbrella group of retailers, manufacturers and distributors.

“Consumers who do not copy music are paying for those who do,” says Paul Tsaparis of Hewlett Packard Canada.
Tsaparis says the music industry has collected $28 million so far from the levy â€” none of which has gone to artists or composers.
