Flash: No Connected Device Tax in France Before 2015

Readers may recall that one of the most radical ideas put forth in last May's Lescure report was a (1%) tax on connected devices (as a complement - and eventual substitute - to the levy for private copying). See here

The Minister of Culture announced today (Friday) that no such tax will be included in the 2014 Budget.  In other words, the connected device tax will not be a reality in France until 2015 (at the earliest).
