A Japanese government committee is mulling a copyright law revision to charge royalties on digital music players, but the opinion is so divided on the so-called “iPod tax” that it isn’t likely to be imposed, officials said Wednesday. Japan already levies an extra fee for copyrights on gadgets sold in stores such as mini disk recorders that consumers can use for home copying of music. That charge, generally 3 percent of the product’s wholesale price, is included in the price tag so most shoppers aren’t even aware they’re paying it. The money from such copyright royalties, totaling some 2.2 billion yen, or $19 million US, is collected by an organization set up especially for that purpose and doled out to intermediary groups who in turn pass along the money to recording companies, composers and other artists.

Toshiba presented an attendant robot ‘ApriAlpha V3′ for elderly people in Toshiba’s 130th anniversary exhibition. ‘ApriAlpha V3′ can perceive and identify sounds from every direction by using 6 mikes built inside. It also employs TOSHIBA’s exclusive ‘Voice Signal Processing’, so the robot can respond to greeting of a person and answer a question of another person right away. Its visual sensor and high speed image processing help to identify color and textures of the clothes that people wear. If he meets a person wearing particular clothes that he already has information, he starts to follow him and stops when he reaches the person. When he misses the person, he examines the information again.
