iPod Tax Introduced in Canada

iPod Tax Introduced in Canada

Charlie Angu, New Democratic Party MP, proposed to amend the country’s Copyright Act in order to ensure that users are not criminalized for changing the format of their legally purchased music files and artists are getting money they deserve for their work. That’s when “iPod tax” resurfaced in Canada with Charlie Angus introducing proposals to amend the Copyright Act.

up-angus_cp_731325LG.jpg

Actually, the Private Copying Levy, established in 1997, could be extended to such portable players as iPod. Particularly, it has been said that tax would cover any device containing embedded data storage, like hard disk or solid state, which is advertised, designed and manufactured to copy sound recordings, except for recording devices of prescribed kind. This could give users some control over legally obtained products and open up for artists a new revenue flow in our digital age.

All about the balanced copyright is that any artist has a right to get money for his work and any consumer has a right to access it. If the government is serious when declaring the intention to change the Copyright Act, then it needs to update the key parts of the Act, such as fair dealing and copying levy. The fair dealing motion, for example, would allow consumers to use copyrighted materials for a certain reason like research, study and innovation. Such use does not count as copyright infringement.

Actually, it’s time for PMs to be serious about copyright laws, which have to be updated after all these years of discussions. Charlie Angu is probably the only one understanding the reality in our downloading age, saying that blocking access and suing fans won’t ever prevent consumers from copying music. The only solution that can work out is levy.

However, some others though support the proposal, consider such iPod tax troubling, as the device definition in the texted proposal is so vague that it can also cover PCs and even smartphones.

And, what is more important in this noble experiment – this tax could cause people to buy iPods and similar devices, which are going to be covered by iPod tax, in the places where it won’t apply – specifically, outside of Canada. The money of question is being about $75 range, but nobody knows exactly.

The Canada’s Private Copyright Collective used to push a kind of such levy in 2007, but was defeated by Canadian Federal Court of Appeals.

No avatarIt would be nice to find government seeking alternative ways to generate revenue other than hitting up electronic media.

SnakeyB avatarThanks Sam, We pay a Private Copying Levy on such things as blank cd's even if they are used for Data storage, as most cd's nowadays are used for. I agreed with the tax then and I agree with the new proposed tax now..IF it goes to the artists. Well I can say from past experience it does not. By the time the CD tax made it to a fund for artists, the money collected was approximately 3% of what was taken (Cpw Toronto Star). Plus from there that 3% had to be paid out from a salaried entity making it about .09%.
So $1000 tax taken....90cents paid out.
so if we use the same math as that with the iPod tax as you stated approximately $75 we get.
$75 tax taken.....just under 7cents making it to the artists.
No thanks I will throw a loonie or toonie in a buskers hat on my way to the subway.

menahunie avatarMan those canuks of the north are more screwed up than us yanks... Even the EU over the great water..
It is a tax no matter what you try to cover it with; a diaper full of sh&t still stinks.
I don't own an iPOD cause it's too costly in price; I use a mp3 player instead..
So people are going to order equipment like described from another country and what? Customer gonna kick down their doors and stick a machine gun in their face for importing illegal iPODS?
Again it is all about control.. I Don't have a problem getting the "artists" paid and they are doing a fine job by providing their "art" directly to you and I via the internet with out the RIAA and in very small case MPAA..

kingtiger01 avatarAny way you look at it, its just BS. they need to amend the copyright laws... it should state only the following...

---

" The 'Item' or 'Items' in reference are copyrighted, Thus meaning in such. 'it' is the Intellectual property of 'its' Designer/Author. 'It' can be (non-profitably)distributed, 'Used', 'Copied' and 'Modified' to meet The 'Consumers' needs, As long as it does not meet the following. 1. Product 'Modification' With the intent of Profitable Sale. 2. Product 'Copied' with the Intent of sale. 3. Product 'Copied' for the intent of Falsely Claiming Ownership.

'it' may NEVER be Profitably Distributed by 'a' Third party without Express Permission of 'its' Original Designer/Author, And therefor Never 'copied', 'renamed', or 'Claimed Ownership' by a third party and (profitably)distributed without Consent of the Designer/Author. "

---
It takes care of Several key points, It insures the Consumer and Author/Designer is people in key interest. Insuring the Designer/Author are in Decisive control over the profitable sale of the product. While the Consumer is allowed to do what He/She sees fit, as long as its not re-sold at a profit or Cloned then sold for a profit OR cloned then claiming the product as there own. By doing so it Illiminates the Rogue groups such as MPAA and RIAA, That were originally created in the interest of Protecting artist/actors.

It will settle the problems related to Quote "Pirating" as the interest of both Music and Video Distribution by Consumers to Consumers. Is only an attempt to Express a product and distribute a product for testing/private viewing. If the MPAA would realize around 70% of motion pictures downloaded, the person in question, if they enjoyed it later purchases the film. and over 90% of 'Illegally Downloaded Music' results in Later CD and Online Music Purchases. People dont waste money like they used to, whats the sense when you can Alternatively 'Try before you buy'

Yes not everyone does purchase the items they download, but that percentage usually never spends money on motion pictures or music anyways, so in reality its not a loss, but rather a advertisement gain.
