Re: Of course, Ireland has already protested
Oh Happy Day ... to be a lawyer in Ireland that is.
Considering how hard Apple corp litigates to protect rounded corners, they are going to go all in when it comes to real money.
What I don't understand is American citizens are liable for US income tax on any gains made outside the US. ( as per the IRS claiming capital gains on Boris Johnsons house sale.) But companies can offshore their profits until they are repatriated to the USA. Which suggests that overseas companies with US parents are truly 'foreign' and not under US law, so why the feigned outrage at the EU becoming supra-national within it's own borders??
After all it's not like the USA has ever tried to impose any supra-national authority around the world..
