Comment: 15€ Tax to anonymous artists to store my own (Score 3, Insightful) 129

The ridiculous aspect of this tax is, that when I fill my hard disc with pictures I took myself with my own camera I would still hav to pay for example ca 15 € for a 1TB hard disc which can be bought for as little as 63€ (external USB 3.0)

When Vienna advertising agency owner Niko Alm applied for a new driver's licence, he submitted a photo which showed him wearing a noodle mesh as head gear.
According to regulations, only the face must be visible on the photo, no hats, no caps allowed.
The only exception: religious head gear.
So he declared himself a pastafari and claimed his noodle mesh was therefore a religious head gear.
First authorities denied the driver's license, but after 3 Alm was now issued the document with the rather special ohoto."
