Since 1998, the World Trade Organization (WTO) members have renewed a ban on import duties on so-called "electronic transmissions", worth up to $255 billion a year by one estimate.
A proposal backed by 21 countries including China and Canada seeks to extend the ban for at least six months when it expires at year-end.
At the top of the scale, a recent UN report said potential annual tariff revenue losses could be up to $10.4 billion a year, with more than $10 billion lost by WTO developing countries.
