I'm not sure it is really true, but seeing a television programme here in italy
("report") about SIAE I came to know that in Italy you pay a tax on blank cd-rom
and cd-rw to SIAE (10% I think) for the same reason people pay it for cd-writers
in germany.
That's just incredible (I use CD-rom's for backup only) but seem true.
