Steve Jobs unveils 30% subs model for … everything • The Register

Steve Jobs unveils 30% subs model for … everything • The Register.  So Apple will be slapping a 30% VAT on all reading materials bought from within the iPad? Sorry, but VAT is the only way to describe it. It’s like a city council charging newspaper publishers 30% for the privilege of selling their newspaper in the city.  Sure people can buy the paper from outside and bring it in, but if you want to buy it within the city, then 30% of the price will go to the council – who doesn’t really own anything other than the infrastructure, eg the roads and traffic lights. The shop is privately owned, the content is privately own, the copyright is private.  This is disgraceful.
