The Canadian Private Copying Collective (CPCC) was finally forced to stop appealing in the case of taxing digital audio players in Canada because of alleged copyright infringement, and now Apple Canada is offering those who paid extra for their players a little lovin' in the form of a refund. The tax was in effect from December 2003 until the following December when the Federal Court overturned it, though the CPCC continued to appeal until the Supreme Court finally told them to cut it out already last month. It's a nice gesture on the part of Apple, sure, but some will remember it was the company's choice to pass the tax on to consumers in the first place.
