32,000 Hungarians plan to take to the streets for 'internet tax' protest


Re: Tinfoil hat time?

Government has just obtained distribution rights to every popular TV show and movie in country of Hungary. They plan to offer free on demand streaming to everyone in country. Right at same time as quietly hoping to put small tax on network data.

Next is data security distribution quality [buzzword] assurance law. All companies will be required to host all data in the government cloud. Think of children, what if large server fell on child, would be quite bad. Storing data locally will be forbidden, everything must go on network! Data use tax will apply.
