NL High court rules that musicians should get money for every media sold that could copy music onto it

After having lost court case after court case, NORMA has won in the highest courts, saying that it should get money for each form of media – hard disk, ipod, SD Card, basically anything that allows digital content copied to it – in order to ‘pay the artists’ that could, potentially have their music copied to this media. Not only will the artists not see any of this money, but there is no way of determining who should get how much! Do Dutch judges not understand digital thingamies? Are they still locked into a battle with paper and pen whilst the rest of the world has advanced into a tablet and pc world?
