'Monetizing the Anarchy'

The "idea is to collect a fee from internet service providers -- something like $5 per user per month -- and put it into a pool that would be used to compensate songwriters, performers, publishers and music labels".

In the end, won't such a surcharge ultimately be passed onto the end-user, i.e., all internet users are paying a $5/mo. fee to the record industry?
