No, it's not. At least that's what German politicians say when it comes to our "you must be a pirate" tax. It's just compensation for allowing the "Privatkopie" (private copy) which allows you to share copyrighted (but not copy protected!) material with up to 7 _personal_ friends. This was established years ago in a ruling where a judge with common sense realized there was no way to control what people do with the media they bought (obviously that was before DRM and the NSA).
