Britain Eyes Download Tax: Broadband users could pay an annual levy to download as much music as they want, with proceeds channeled to copyright holders

Date: July 24, 2008
Author: Nigel Morris
QUOTE: Ministers are backing proposals that would enable millions of broadband users to pay an annual levy which would allow them to copy as much—previously illegal—music from the internet as they wanted. The money raised would be channelled back to the rights-holders, with artists responsible for the most popular songs receiving a bigger slice of the cash.
