    The U.S. has been punishing foriegn countries for years for government subsidies giving their products an unfair advantage in the market place. If the courts have ruled that we are doing the same thing through some of our corporate welfare programs, then what is going on is to be expected.

    That's just typical of the EU!

    Best bet is to ask for models to be sent over as gifts. (No extra tax) ;)

    The article now on the "buyusa" website states that the EU is now withdrawing this levy.
