Re: Will federal tarrifs/tax on recordable media be dropped?

said by cog_biz_user:

i thought this fee also applied to hard drives, because of their immense size...?

No. It *only* applies to CD-R media (and also cassette tapes and minidiscs, but that's outside the scope of this discussion). The Copyright Board tried to add levies to a bunch of other media about ten or so years ago the federal court ended up turfing it at some point before it was ever implemented.
