| such as that carried by Google, which would be 
| used to pay the creators of artistic and other 
| works who lose out to online piracy.


France floats Google music-and-movie tax

,----[ Quote ]
| A new proposal to tax internet advertising 
| revenue was among the recommendations offered 
| by the government-appointed panel. Money 
| raised would finance the availability of 
| cultural material online and fund the 
| protection of artists losing out to piracy.
| [...]
| Zelnick's recommendations follow the French 
| government's efforts to pass its controversial 
| "three strikes" law that would disconnect 
| internet users repeatedly accused of illegal 
| downloading. His reports also taps into fears 
| of the growing influence of major internet 
| companies.

Music industry talks break down in illegal downloading row

,----[ Quote ]
| Many in the music business believe that the disunity,
| which has involved public spats between the FAC and
| artists such as Lily Allen, Abba and Muse, will derail
| Lord Mandelsonâs proposals, as the industry fails to
| present a united front.
| UK Music, the umbrella organisation for the whole music
| industry, has already dropped all mentions of
| disconnection from its public statements on the issue,
| in a desperate attempt to unite the industry. The
| consultation period for the plans ends in a weekâs time.
