BBC reports that Google and other net firms could be taxed under plans being considered by the French government. The money could be used to fund legal alternatives for buying books, films and music on the internet. But critics say the tax would be difficult to implement and Google says it could slow down innovation.
What do you think of France’s move to tax net firms? Will it not only slow innovation but thwart attempts to find new and effect business models?
We’d like to hear your thoughts.
