I think it’s a great idea. However, levy should only be on CDR’s or DVDR’s (NOT CDRW and DVDRW as these are not permanent copies and could be likened to watching something played on free to air TV) and should be split evenly among Gaming Companies as well as Music and Movie companies. In response as well, no cd’s should have ANY form of copy protection, since the levy is to ensure that they get their cut on content which are copied, as it is an alternative income, not to provide additonal income. Also DVD media should have a small levy for Movie companies (and game companies, when they start releasing titles on DVD), also they should be forced to scrap CSS, macrovision & Region locking from DVD’s, and any/all copy protections which prevent / hinder people from copying the content. Should also have proviso that companies which lock or copy protect content should receive no share of the levy, and also that the levy should be removed in the case that any form of copy protection is commonly placed on the media. Keep in mind that the levy will be small, and professionals (eg Data Backup operators) should be exempt from the levy (and can claim it back at tax time). Copying for resale should still be criminal though, as people are making profits from content which isn’t there’s. We all know that it’s not gonna happen though. The levy will simply be charged, and they’ll still lock up the content behind 20 levels of protection.
