Anti-Piracy tax on iPods?

I was reading the news this morning and found an interesting article at the Extreme iPod website. It seems that in the Netherlands, they are debating adding an additional tax on all portable media devices.

“Stichting de Thuiskope, the lobbying group that represents music rights holders in the Netherlands, is proposing a plan which would see a tax of around 3 Euros per megabyte of storage on both MP3 players and hard drives, with the proceeds being divided up between artists”

According the the article, the above would add more than $250 to the price of a 60GB iPod!

Read it all at the Extreme iPod Website.
