The legalization without a fee has to be done modifying national law *and* 
international treaties (Berne Convention etc.).
The legalization with a fee can be done modifying national law.
Different goals with different strategies..

IMHO legalization with a fee today is viable.
Legalization without a fee today is not viable.

Adopting a fee approach that implies applying a "tax" to all broadband users 
is one option.
There are other options like collecting the fee through:
a) general taxes 
b) licences (users decide whether to pay or not).
