Many people will be familiar with the tax (also known as "sky" or "streaming" tax) as it has been the subject of litigation from various companies and organizations, including Apple, Netflix and Entertainment Software Association. The Liberty Justice Center has also undoubtedly filed a lawsuit against the tax, claiming that it was discriminatory as it did not apply to live shows and amusement parks.
While legal affairs are ongoing, Sony has entered into an agreement with the authorities and will start collecting the above-mentioned tax ̵
Players are understandably upset by the development and it has the alarm Liberty Justice Center.
"We believe that the city does not have the constitutional right to do so." Said senior lawyer Jeffrey Schwab. "They do not charge if anyone used it [the streaming services] in Chicago, but if they had a billing address in Chicago."
While Apple and several others are still fighting for taxes, PlayStation will join Netflix, Spotify, Hulu and Pandora in the collection.
