That's between the EU and Luxembourg though isn't it? Which afaik the EU had demanded that the VAT rate be raised until they can decide whether to reclassify ebooks to make them the same VAT rate as paper books.
Lets say Luxembourg abide by the EU demands to raise the VAT rate on ebooks and bring it up to the minimum they can, 15%, according to what Rizla is saying, Amazon would still be acting immorally to charge 15% VAT when other companies based in the UK are charging 20% VAT.
I don't see it myself.
