France, Portugal and I think Germany have the same kind of taxes.
Belgium was preparing a tax like that, but I don't know what the status
is there. The UK does not have such a law.

In Spain it only includes CD-Rs ? In Portugal it includes every
recording/copying device and blank media (which includes paper copiers,
VCRs, diskettes, etc.).
