Many issues with this. Some raised in the article. What I
wonder most of all is does a State have the right to make
a company not located in their State comply with their laws
by defining "doing business in their State" as accepting
online orders from their State's residents? If yes, what
other laws would all online businesses be forced to comply
with?

Sounds like you need to talk to a lawyer? :)

Hi Lawman,

I don't currently have an online business, thus it
doesn't currently affect me. I am planning on starting
one someday. Since many here do have online businesses,
I thought folks would be like to know about this and
might care to discuss the issue. It interest me, thus
the post.

Take care,

Louis
