Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, the city's tax is on the sale of tangible property. So the argument is about what is tangible. Electrons can shock you and photons can give your skin a burn. Does that count as tangible? Simpler to enact a tax on entertainment services delivered to the residents of the city. Then get in line to await court decisions. But don't hold your breath. SCOTUS now has a 5 R majority so 'No New Taxes' could be the law of the land.
