"My local newspaper recently ran a story about the escalating battle between Amazon.com and the state of California. At issue is the collection of sales tax: Governor Jerry Brown signed a law requiring online retailers to collect state sales tax on purchases made by CA residents. Before the ink had dried on the legislation, Amazon severed ties with its estimated 10,000 affiliates in CA. These are -- or were -- small businesses that earned commissions on customers who clicked through their websites to the online bookseller." (07/19/11)
