Is UK Government’s Tax Relief For Videogame Industry Severely Hampered By EU Law?

One Hit Pixel: "What started off as a great idea to reignite the games industry in the UK, putting more people into development roles, has now started to show signs of breaking apart at the seams. The UK government have proposed something known as “The Cultural Test”, the idea being that developers qualify for tax credits based on requirements that reflect not only the hiring of British personnel, but also that the games themselves reflect British principles. Naturally I was as confused as everyone else about why this was necessary, so I put a few questions to the government. I eventually got a response from a Press Officer from the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS)." (Industry)

What a pile of crap that is, if anything if severely hampers development. God I hate all the stupid sh*t the EU implement.
