New EU Law affecting Digital Sales

If you haven't heard about the new European laws on tax payable on digital products, then head on over here to find out more.  Even better go here and sign the petition to stop it!  Basically anyone who sells e-products, be it digital stamps or sewing pdfs etc will now be liable to pay tax on that income to the country where the buyer is!  It's a total minefield and means that my plans for introducing selling patterns and tutorials next year will have to go on hold pending the outcome of this and potentially will have to be cancelled altogether.

It will mean that many micro businesses will close up shop.  It's so sad and so unnecessary! If they were just to introduce some sort of threshold it would exclude all the tiny businesses like mine, but still catch the big ones like Amazon!
