Not only is it charging twice for stuff you bought, its charging the first time for stuff you didn't buy, and didn't want.

If there was a levy on blank media to pay for piracy, then morally there can be no objection should I choose to fill that media with pirated stuff - I already paid the premium for that, and so there can be no loss on the other side.
