    If it means I can download all this shit legally I might spare my few pennies.

    Might solve a few problems, including kicking the RIAA/MPAA out of office .

    I've heard obtaining property intellect in The Netherlands is permitted, do they have a tax?

    In Canada we have a "blank media levy" which allows for private individuals making private copies. It is not relevant whether the source of the track is a pre-owned recording, a borrowed CD, or a track downloaded from the Internet. It is built into our Copyright Act, but the RIAA/MPAA (and their Canadian counterparts) have been lobbying for USA-style laws.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I generally think that itīs a good idea, however the correct distribution of the money to the different intellectual property owners might proof difficult.

    Ammending Tax for piracy is like making piracy some sort legit assisted by government which will face huge debacle from law makers also most of the law in a country are made after consulting Corporates they will neva gonna let this happen as it might hinder thier sales volume and profit

    In Europe & North America also Australia to an extent main problem arises from normal citizens as they share stuff rather than buying em which they think it is really trippin their sales so they will jus resort to scare tactics like they are doing now to prevent it Since the prosecution is done individual by individual not as a whole group
    But In South America , Asia & Africa the threat of Piracy is not limited to common file sharers but to organizations to earn millions of dollars through piracy so threat of piracy differs from place to place and a common law is impossible to implement if implemented, will people who earn millions through piracy will give a damn about it ?

    Even technically Tax calculation will be huge problem when implementing for such purpose

    What you said is complete gibberish to me, with no connection to your opinion that 'they' (govt? corps themselves?) should lower prices to combat piracy. I hope you realize that most major corporations in this industry have already set their business model (prices) to max profits. The piracy lawsuits are an attempt to gain excess profits.
