Spain legalises media copying

With one small piece of law, Spain have made replication of copyrighted media completely legal in their country.

How?

When you buy blank media (CDs, DVDs) in Spain, it’s already been taxed for whatever gets copied onto it. So... buy a new music or literary CD, copy it onto as many pre-taxed media as you can afford, legally distribute same.

The Spanish music industry will probably explode.

Literally.

With lots of debris. E.g. exactly one copy of each album temporarily sold per university.
