UK Government To Tax Linux? (ParodyLaw.com)

Remember that one hundred percent of zero is still zero.

From Slashdot:

“The UK government is looking at introducing a tax aimed at software published under GNU GPL. It claims that because programmers do it for free, it is losing out on income tax and that commercial software companies (read Microsoft) are at a disadvantage. Some pressure group has already put up a website with more details and news site Techworld have got a quote from a Treasury spokesman saying that they’re only considering it.”

OK, this is one of favorite parodies of the day. So far.
