Political prudes

Reader Jason Bret Fahlman says taxing adult sites in the U.S. could send jobs and dollars to other countries.

In response to the Perspectives column written by Declan McCullagh, "The Internet again in the political crosshairs":

I read your last piece on regulating the content of the Internet through U.S. law and had an additional thought regarding taxation of adult sites. If U.S. sites are taxed, but the rest of the world is not, then it won't be long before all those jobs and dollars begin flowing out of U.S. consumers' pockets and into the pockets of foreign companies who are a lot more competitive than their U.S. counterparts, owing to the country's one-sided tax.
