Now they want to tax SD storage devices to fight against music piracy......What BS....I hope the CPCC doesn't get their way as they will go after a levy on hard drives next:

I guess I will purchase all my SD cards in the U.S. if this gets past.....

always interesting to see how they avoid stating who runs this organization.

I guess we can contact them and tell them how ridiculous this tax is, but it will probably fall on deaf ears. It says it's a non-profit organisation....I wonder how much money they get from the recording industry…..

Here is their contact info:

I don't know about others, but most of my SD cards are used in cameras to take personal photos and videos and are not used to store music......SD cards are for the most part temporary storage in poratable devices....
