Canadian users again face an increase in the cost of blank CDs, as the Copyright Board has increased levies on them by 38%. The raise was authorized in response to rises in music compression and increases in songwriter royalties. With this rise, the Copyright Board is simply ignoring all technological advances since 1999, while the music industry enriches itself.

Sooner or later they will figure out that MP3's are the "it" thing now. CD's are not needed anymore. Just get the MP3 and then put it on your mobile device. Bypassing the CD altogether. So they can raise prices all they want. Still wont sell them...

NY already figured it out :-(

Propose tax increases includes music downloads.

Canada will wise up and follow.
