+ - French Government May Tax Technology to Support, Protect Culture->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "The French government is pondering over introduction of new tax on technology in tune of 1 to 4% specifically on products like smartphone, tablets and laptops generating as much as 86m euros per year which would be used to support and protect French music, film, and the arts. The recommendations have been given through a report which is a result of a nine months of research into ways to strengthen “cultural exception”."
