Submission + - Tax on camera storage to benefit RIAA

An anonymous reader writes: "New levies proposed for iPods and memory cards": The Canadian government is proposing that the common, portable, digital storage mediums (DVDs, CDs, compact flash, SD cards, etc) be whacked with a levy to reflect their use in piracy and that the money from that levy goes guessed it, the music industry. If it were just CDs, I might be happy, but solid state storage is just a bridge too far.
