Here in Hungary a similar tax was introduced by Artisjus (Hungarian RIAA). You have to pay it for CD-s, DVD-s, flash drives, and memory cards, etc... They even sued Nokia for not paying this tax for the built-in memory in cell phones. The result: Black market. A whole industry was built to import these stuff from Slovakia without paying any tax neither to Artisjus, neither VET.

Federal grants are offered for... research into the recreation potential of interplanetary space travel for the culturally disadvantaged.
