Canadian Songwriters Propose $10/mo Internet Fee

BitterOak points out this Windsor Star story, according to which “Canadian songwriters are proposing a $10 fee to be added to monthly ISP bills, giving users a license to download music using peer-to-peer file sharing technologies for free, without fear of reprisal. The money collected would be distributed to members of a Canadian association of songwriters (SOCAN). The story doesn’t make clear whether the license would apply only to Canadian music, or how musicians in other nations would be compensated otherwise.”
