Same with ink jet cartridges and stickers etc. Not everyone has a printer. (I've got 2 but they won't hook up to my Mac, there too old). The litescribe feature takes up no room, and it is very COOL!!!


Actually I was talking about the inkjet printers that print directly on the cd's, no labels needed, just the all white cd's that are readily available and cheap.


Oh, I get you. I doubt I'll go that way though. It's only 20-30 for the lightscribe feature.

If I do get a new printer it would be a color laser. Seeing they are get affordable at the consumer level. I'm tired of inkets. I don't print my photos out anymore. If I do I'll take them somewhere and pay 20 cents a print. They'll do a much better job.

LoL, i used to use Kazza but they closed, sounds like it's a software downloading company from the middle east (all mp3's donated by Sadam & Friends). Be the first to download 1,000 songs and win a free AK???

I don't know if this is true, but I have heard in Canada you can copy music legally. We pay up front for "stealing". When we buy a CD blank or hard drive. There is a charge built into the medium for piracy. The money goes directly to the recording industry.

Yah... that was my 300th post Very Happy

That's true. There is a tax on MP3 players, burnable CDs, CD-burners, and some other stuff too. I don't know if it's on actual hard drives, but I could be wrong. The fee was $.21 per Gb in 2001. Proposed to $.59 in 2003, but I couldn't find if it went into effect.

The USA also has the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992. This act levies a 2% tax on "digital audio recording devices." I would think this would include computers and CD-burners, but who knows. The act isn't very specific (this is always BAD).

Canadian levy rates.
The US levy is on stand aone audio recorders and cd-r audio blanks used in them.
