The Financial Times reports France is preparing to tax smartphones, tablets and all other internet-linked devices to help fund the production of French art, films and music.
The proposal has been endorsed by President François Hollande’s socialist administration.
The report proposed imposing a tax of up to 4 per cent on the sale of all devices, including gaming consoles and e-readers, that allow access via the internet to “cultural content”.
Any chance if this happening in Nigeria??
