Imposing this method on the consumers obviously buys the right to download copyrighted music. This then pre-empts further extortion by the IP hoarding industry. They and the artists have been paid their faur share. The fact that they choose to hold onto the 3 billion euros each year and not distribute it to the artists is not the fault of the fans or consumers.
A tax on media added for the purpose of compensating copyright holders pre-empts further claims and makes downloading and burning copies to audio-CD legal even in the USA.
