Dear Paul:

OK, let's say we set up a server in Guernsey.  How would the EU impose the 
tax upon us?

Further, how would they tax us on our PSI-Japan sales within the EU?  How 
would they ever know?

BTW, people in the EU said VAT on a domain name for a business was a non 
issue as it was a business expense and therefore deductible.
