Musicians sue UK.gov over 'zero pay' copyright fix

Regardless of your opinion on blank media levies and the like, we should all be giving the IPO a damn good kicking. The EU directive is clear about artist remuneration; all the IPO have done by ignoring it is ensured that we, the taxpayers, are going to have to pay for a lengthy legal process which will inevitably side with the existing EU rules.

If the IPO wants to change the rules regarding compensation for private-use copying then they need to do it at a European level. Ignoring existing rules is just pissing our money up against the wall for no good reason.
