    This chapter focuses on the parties and discourses involved in the decision by the EC in 2007 to allow France to introduce a tax credit system to aid developers of certain types of video games. This chapter is based on a critical reading of the EC decision, third-party submissions, and press releases released by the various trade associations. It attempts through these documents to identify the actors and to interrogate the discourses they employ.
