Welp... re: DMCA, tax, comments: The DMCA is a draconian law that should be rewritten to allow for the DM in DMCA, instead we must follow this 14th century law that says obey or we'll treat... well, lets just say they'll do nasty things to us peasants. If I remember correctly, the tax is supposed to be because of piracy and the resources having to be dedicated to stopping it. Since the media is the product to be used for piracy, it pays to tax it. So, its not really a 'fine' its the same as being taxed for road improvements in the community, regardless of if you use them, if you fall into the range they set, you pay the assessment. I found that out because thats whats happening to me. And, as for the Rich get Richer comment... its true because those who are rich know how to manage and grow their money, have skills that are applicable to the world around them, have social skills that enable them to make contacts, and other psychological traits. Once you HAVE money, its a lot easier to make money, just place it somewhere with a higher than inflation % of return, and never touch it, and you are golden. $1,000,000 can at least generate 30+ thousand dollars a year, and 1Million is only a lot to the middle-middleclass and lower. I fall into that category sad to say.
