The French government says the tax will end if a similar measure is agreed internationally.
The big tech companies have argued they are complying with national and international tax laws.

Raise that taxes on the rich and they always say first that they’ve paid their taxes per the law.

That is why they are changing the law :)

They need those taxes for the whole EU.

It is a EU law indeed, it allows member states to tax profits generated within their territory even if a company does not have a physical presence there. Other countries have already implemented this, others have not for fear of scaring investors.
