Comment: 	RE: SHK 3.0097  New FCC Surcharges for Modem Use?
 
I understand from Columbia Professor Terry Belanger, who dealt with this
matter on ExLibris, that the threat of FCC taxes on modems is a new-style
"urban legend" (see the several works on *that* topic by Brunvand) and
has no basis in reality.  You might want to check with him for confirmation
on this point; my memory could be faulty (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
But I don't think so.

The warning about FCC surcharges for modem users refers to a proposal
about two years that the FCC abandoned when it got flooded with
complaints. It started appearing again about three weeks ago on
various lists as a kind of electronic legend. It's not accurate.
Dump it, and don't write the FCC. They might revive the idea if anyone
reminds them of it.
