The problem with the tax idea is that it doesn't really vary from any other isp based additional charge that has already been suggested. The flaw with the idea is that it charges everyone regardless of wether they download music/films or not. Why should these people be charged an additional tax for something that they don't even use? Most people would go along with the idea that internet users who make money out of what they download are fair game and that they should be caught and charged accordingly. Where opinions diverge is when someone downloads something for their private use and to check if they like the what they have downloaded. I won't go in to the argument about music that's not readily available from the cartels catalogues, but can be obtained from private users.
