New EU VAT regulations

From 1 January 2015, EU VAT will be charged in the country where products are bought as opposed to the country where they are sold. The legislation applies to digital products only, such as e-books, online courses or downloads.
I was thinking to upgrade from artist 8 to pro 8, online shop shows 199 euro without VAT. From 1 January the price will be 199 + vat ? (it’s 24% in Romania).

24%? Ouch!!

Well, here in Soviet People’s Republic of Finlandija we have 25%.
