I don't mind the blank media tax actually. A lot of my CDs and stuff do get pirated music put on them (as well as movies and other stuff) if anything should happen with that it should be that the tax money gets split up and not just given to the music people. I am actually FOR the proposed tax on iPods and other PMPs because it lets me keep making backups and downloading things legally AND the people who make it (or at least their corporate masters) get payed. That last point is actually what irks me. The tax money should go directly to the bank accounts of the creators of content (however minuscule it is).
