Copyright Agency seeks payment for internet browsing

Charges for 'Digital Copying'?

According to a story [story removed] on the Australian IT website recently (accessed 28 February 2006), the Copyright Agency is seeking a payment of $10 per student per year from schools to cover “digital copying”: copying materials from the internet. The Copyright Tribunal held a hearing on the matter last year, but it may go to the Federal Court before it is implemented.
