    Under a proposal designed to help musicians cash in on the millions of song downloads every year, one group is proposing that all Canadian broadband users pay a $5 monthly fee for unlimited music downloads.

    Eddie Schwartz, of the Songwriters Association of Canada, revealed the plan on CTV's Canada AM on Thursday. He says the fee is small, but multiplied many times over it would create a substantial pool of cash to compensate musicians when their songs are downloaded.

    I'd be down for this. $5.00 is more than fair.

    I'm not much for music downloads, but I'd consider something like this if it went straight to the artists instead of to the record labels.
    Sage goes in the signature field.

    Well I would love all this to go to the artist but I bet the record labels are going to some get more than their cut out of this.
    Remember bullets always have the right of way.

    Could be a dangerous precedent how about 20$ for movies 20$ for games and lets not forget books ....Oh wait what about porn

    5$ for unlimited music seems fine... but it would be unfair for those who dont download music.
