EU vote this week to set same VAT on ebooks as books

An article today in the Daily Mail indicating that the prices on Ebooks in the UK could be going down if the VAT rate is harmonised with that of books.(ebooks are taxed at 20% and hard copies are not).

A slightly less hysterical article can be found here:

"A Polish proposal would see the VAT on ebooks harmonised across the UK and end UK ebook sales attracting 20% VAT. Other countries already have lower rates of VAT for ebooks. In France printed books and ebooks are both taxed at 5.5 per cent and in Luxembourg it’s 3 per cent. "
