    I was pricing up an Apple laptop today and noticed in the side bar on the right side that included in the price was a 'copyright levy'. Since when did this happen?

    This is from the UK store. I thought I'd hear more of a fuss about this?

    I would provide an image but I've done it at the wrong time as the Apple stores are down. But has anybody else seen this?

    Ouch, I might have to start exporting Macs to the UK to combat the greed and stupidity of the failing record labels.
