I don't get what the big deal is here. They now have nexus in a state they didn't use to. Very common.
Collecting sales tax and not remitting it is just about one of the worst sins you can make (probably even worse than not paying at all!) so I doubt they're using this as a revenue source.
If anything is going on here I think it's more likely they just decided "oh sh!t, we have nexus in NY- we better start collecting and remitting it".
