And this tax would fund German Eurobonds, right?

Really, this is the sort of US (and Euro) activity which feeds the 'American exceptionalism' vantage point big time.

It's way past time to tax the internet.

We should be able to start off at 1 penny (or pence) per megabyte uploaded or downloaded. Once that revenue stabilizes we can adjust it up or down as necessary.


so once in force, the ISP's pass the costs onto the customer....Nice one - NOT!!!

On the other hand, there's a rich digital world to be taken advantage of in other ways.


Sad, politics becoming more like big business every day.

Might as well get it over and make it a buck a click.
You open the freaking door and you KNOW that's where it is going.
Instant monetary censorship.

A good side effect will be that a bunch of hit counters on crap web sites will drop to zero.


& Myspace/Bebo/Facebook/Twitter dies....nice.

Set a right click option to report as spam. If x number of people report the same email as spam it must be spam.

That way if goverments and politicians try to communicate with their citizens via email and enough report it as spam, the government taxs itself.
