"Made for iPod" Tax

According to a news article published in the Brazilian website IDG Now, the companies that make iPod accessories will have to pay 10% of all their revenues to Apple.

I wonder: isn't one of the iPod's most successful sales drivers precisely the wide range of accessories that complement and facilitate the so-called "iPod experience"?

Hasn't Steve Jobs heard of the term "coopetition"?

Rigth. But those accessories manufacturers only seel their products because they endorse the iPod seal. In the end it's a win-win situation for both.
