Will TVA changes from the 1 January 2015 affect French businesses?

I have just seen this article on facebook. It states that:

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. UK businesses are currently exempt from paying VAT if they sell under £81,000 worth of products a year. However this threshold will be removed for those exporting digital products and services to Europe, from New Year’s Day.

Clearly that is specific to UK businesses, however it strikes me that it is very possible that this could also apply to French businesses doing business in other EU member states. At present, I am exempt. Is this going to change on 1 January 2015 or can I relax?
