A court ruling in Switzerland will now mean consumers in the country will have to pay a tax on digital music devices such as iPods and MP3 players, as well as some types of audio/video recorders. The one-off tax ranges in price from SFr30-90 ($25-75): The Federal Court rejected consumer complaints about the tax which will be levied by Swiss collection society SUISA.
