An anonymous reader writes: Ukrainan deputy Sergiy Terehin (Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc) has proposed a law that will force every Ukrainian Internet user to pay 1% of every transfered bit cost as a new tax starting from January, the 1st, 2010.
This may signal the end of unlimited network access for Ukraine.
Additionally, this bill creates additional taxes for cable TV (1%). Rentals, theatre and cinema tickets, and any media that can contain movies might get additional 5% tax.
The intended purpose of the tax is to provide additional financing for theaters and movie makers (yeah, right...).
The link is dated July 2009, but Internet Association of Ukraine plans to gather a protest against this law on 22nd of December.
