"Striking down the iPod tax" Editorial in National Post

The National Post has a very blunt editorial in today's paper.

It begins thus:

Canadians were suddenly freed last week from the grim prospect of a whopping $75 "iPod tax" on portable digital music players with 30 gigabytes or more of embedded storage space. The levy, approved by the Copyright Board of Canada in July, would have kicked in this year, raising the domestic price on high-end versions of Apple's iPod and its market rivals by around 30%. Retailers and manufacturers naturally moved fast to appeal the decision, and won big. The decision penned by Federal Court of Appeal Judge Karen Sharlow is just six brusque paragraphs in length, and required less than 24 hours to deliver.

It is not hard to understand why the court's action was so quick and vicious...
