DFer wants a tax on online video-streaming services

Alex Ahrendtsen, the culture spokesperson for Dansk Folkeparti, wants a 2 percent tax charged to multinational online video-streaming services like Netflix. Ahrendtsen wants the levy to be part of a new film deal, for which negotiations begin on 7 October, as a way to help fund the Danish film industry. […] Ahrendtsen called companies like Google, Apple Inc. and Netflix “soldiers of fortune” that undermine, rather than help, the Danish film market. […] Enhedslisten culture spokesperson Jørgen Arbo-Bæhr said that consumers would wind up paying the bill if companies are hit with a fee. – Ray Weaver,The Copenhagen Post
