Well, I agree - I've never been a fan of the import fees. However, the import laws are made by the individual countries. More than likely, Leaf "declared" the value of the item they sent - and probably insured it (due to it's value). That's the legal and proper way to send the package. Leaf was nice enough to pay the taxes, but it really wasn't their responsibility or fault.
