This is just unbelievable. In the news paper today, I read something truly sad. A new taxation implemented by the federal government could be in place by January for all Canadians. What is being Taxed? Well, ALL forms of media storage that could possibly hold illegal media, such as MP3's etc etc. This includes Hard Drives, all forms of memory for digital camera's, and basically anything that can store data that could possibly be illegal. Recordable DVD's will be taxed $2.27 per DVD, CD-R's will be taxed $1.23 per CD, removable memory for digital camera's will be taxed 8 cents per Megabyte, and non removable memory 2.1 cents per megabyte. The real kicker is this. Computer hard drives will be taxed up to $21 per Gigabyte, yes $21 per GIGABYTE!!!! Now if you do the math, a 120gb hard drive costs about $210 bucks right now, with the tax being put in place that hard drive would now cost an amazing $2,730. That would hit the computer industry INCREDIBLY hard, as most people wouldn't even consider buying a personal computer, since they would now cost $4,000 or more dollars. I think it is an absolute joke that things like storage devices be taxed so heavily simply to reimburse the friggin artists who say they are losing money. Great, now with that tax money they receive they can go buy another Bentley or a house, wonderful. Here is the article that was in the local newspaper today. Levy to protect artists’ income Let me know what you guys think of this.
