    Fuck these people. So if you grind to gather gold to buy an item with gold instead of real currency because you are broke and then you have to pay taxes for the in-game currency

    Your argument holds no water. You have a bunch of old government farts sitting around trying to figure out how to cash in on the ridiculous amount of American money being thrown at a Chinese or other country’s video game company. The thing people forget is you never actually own anything – you pay to use their services – if they cease to exist you don’t have anything. You don’t ever own ANY digital content – Steam, Playstation, etc… you pay to use. If it goes away tomorrow so does “your” content.
