Comment: Give the 13 year olds free realms... (Score 1) 238

by ILuvSP (#29452213) Attached to: Casual Games Quickly Transforming the MMO Market
While I agree that free realms do have broader appeal, why does that have to be the all we get? I pay to play WoW because to me it is worth it...or used to be anyway. The game has become..well..in all honesty a joke. I have been playing since the day it came out. Sure, make games that are free to play so that you can draw in the 13 year olds. But that shouldn't stop game developers from making games, that are subscription based that do have the separation that a lot of more mature players want.

+ - Canada may tax legal music downloads 3

FuriousBalancing (903038) writes "MacNN reports:

Canadians may soon pay a small tax on every legal music store download, says a new measure (PDF) sanctioned by the Copyright Board of Canada. Requested by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), the tax would apply at least 2.1 cents to every individual song download and 1.5 cents per track for complete albums. Subscription download and streaming services would themselves be charged between 5.7 and 6.8 percent of a user's monthly fees. Minimum fees would also apply for every larger download or subscription. The new tax would be retroactive to January 1st, 1996."
