SCC quashes levy on iPods

I just learned that the Copyright Board has been collecting money - $2 to $25 - for each sale of an MP3 player. Over the last year they've amassed about $4,000,000 bucks. The amount of the levy is based on the size of the storage space so all the iPods have been taxed $25 each while the iPod Minis have been taxed at a lower level.

My question is: now that the levy is quashed, will prices come down?
