Subject: RE: Brexit and music
Perhaps when we leave the EU, VAT can lowered or abolished.

Nothing certain except death and taxes. The answer will be NO! time will tell, I can wait. Import duty threshold was reduced to £15 - a stealth tax to pay for it. And IME they slap VAT on top of that. Outside of the EU there are no rules - look at the constitutional arguements now! Music is low on their agenda.

Copyright will be affected by Brexit, mostly through litigation, rather than any immediate change in the law.
