France Gives Tax Breaks To Culturally Relevant Video Games
from the oui? dept
The French government isn't shy about trying to promote local culture, and apparently they've decided that video games should be a decent part of that culture. The government has decided that it will now offer tax credits to local companies that produce video games "with a cultural dimension." They claim they need to do this to help keep video game production in France, but if there isn't demand for local video game production, then why should the French government subsidize it? If there is demand, then won't the market take care of it without French taxpayer money?
