Canon Fodder

Do you like this building? It's not really to my taste, a bit too over elaborate. In any case, if you buy digital storage media in Spain it doesn't really matter whether you like it or not because you'll be paying for it. The building is the headquarters of the Sociedad General de Autores y Editores (SGAE), collectors of the now notorious "canon digital" - the private tax that means you have to pay extra for those CD's on which you store your own intellectual property.
