Canadian songwriters propose file-sharing tax. A *voluntary* file-sharing tax.

Canadian songwriters don’t want to sue file-sharers. In fact, we like file-sharing. It’s the most efficient distribution system of the largest repertoire of music ever assembled, and it’s available to virtually everyone. What’s not to love about that? We don’t want to stop it; we just want to get paid for the use of our work. We think that most music fans agree with that, and that millions of Canadians would welcome a legal way to share any and all music files…

Considering that Canadians already pay a levy on blank media this idea isn’t as crazy as it sounds…
