Canadian Buyers of MP3 players to get refund

Canadians who bought an MP3 player in 2004 could be eligible for a refund

Apple, Sony, and Hewlett-Packard announced this week that they would refund the "piracy" levy customers paid on their MP3 players, including the iPod, between December, 2003 and December, 2004, after the Supreme Court of Canada refused last month to overturn a Federal Court of Appeal decision that rendered the levy invalid.
