No it is not, because we already pay a private copying levy for every storage medium – hard drive, SSD, USB stick, rewritable optical disk etc. – and any other device which can produce or display/play copies to make up for private copies.

German books and ebooks are actually more expensive because of the fixed book prices law. Which means book sellers cannot compete via lowering book prices, yet another stupid anti-competetive law.
