Re: Of course, Ireland has already protested

So too has America - the EU doesn't have the right to tax American companies - that right is reserved by the US ... and no doubt, at some point in the future, they will get around the thinking about doing something about it - or not.

Governments everywhere have to start recognizing that in a global economy they all have to co-operate and agree to a uniform tax structure - this sort of thing (moving your income on paper, assigning intellectual property rights to convenient locations) will continue otherwise.
