France is at it again. Never one to turn the other cheek to a new tax to fund culture, President Francois Hollande could force a new tax on Apple and Google. From Reuters:
The proposed tax would mirror fees already paid by television users, TV and radio broadcasters and Internet service providers to fund art, cinema and music in France, but which Google, Apple and Amazon are now exempt from paying.
Yet another example of why technology businesses flock to France. For vacations.
