This is certainly interesting and worth noting concerning the Colorado legislation:
Bennett Kelley of the Internet Law Center says: “Merchants should not rush to follow Amazon’s lead since the “affiliate nexus” provision that has defined “Amazon Tax” bills to date has been stripped from the new law such that having in-state affiliates does not trigger any tax liability.
It seems Amazon, nevertheless, pulled the plug on it's Colorado affiliates in a ploy to drive home it's strong opposition to the state's action. On the other hand, there ought to be some encouragement that state legislators are listening to the plight of affiliates, although Amazon appears to have been insensitive to it.
