Extra music and movie taxes on your PC and smartphone?

Source: Vildt slagsmål på vej: Nu vil de lægge nye musik- og film-afgifter på din pc og smartphone

Danish Minister of culture Mette Bock wants to update the tax system for empty media. This historically was about compensating musicians for the possible legal copying of music to CDs, DVDs etc. Currently media like USB drives are also included. 

An update would probably add computers, tablets and smartphones to that list, reasoning music and movies can also be copied to these.

The argument against this is, that people have stopped downloading and copying altogether and only stream.
