States push harder for online sales tax collection - 0 views

  •  
    "It's not known exactly how much in uncollected taxes is due to states from
    online sales, but a 2009 study from the University of Tennessee estimated that
    it could total $10.14 billion this year, assuming total e-commerce sales of
    $3.49 trillion. Only a fraction of this owed tax would result from consumer
    purchases, however, because most e-commerce sales are from one business to
    another."

    "The Texas House approved a bill on Tuesday that would expand the number of
    Internet companies required to collect sales tax.

    The bill, which passed on a 122-23 vote, would change the definition of what
    it means to have a physical presence in Texas. State Rep. John Otto, R-Dayton,
    said it would force Internet-based companies like Amazon.com to collect sales
    taxes if they pay marketers in Texas to advertise for them."

Internet Sales Tax Fairness | The New Rules Project - 1 views

  • In a 1992 decision, Quill v. North Dakota, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that retailers are exempt from collecting sales taxes in states where they have no physical presence, such as a store, office, or warehouse.   (The legal term for this physical presence is "nexus.")    Although the case dealt with a catalog mail-order company, the ruling has subsequently been applied to all remote sellers, including online retailers. The Court said that requiring these companies to comply with the varied sales tax rules and regulations of 45 states and some 7,500 different local taxing jurisdictions would burden interstate commerce.

  • It disadvantages local businesses.  Exempting online retailers from having to collect sales tax, as regular stores must, gives these companies a 4 to 9 percent price advantage over local stores — a sizable competitive advantage in retailing.

e-commerce: Definition from Answers.com - 0 views

  •  
    "business-to-consumer and business-to-business commerce conducted by
    way of the
    Internet
    or other electronic networks.

    E-commerce

    originated in a standard for the exchange of documents during the 1948 - 49
    Berlin blockade and airlift. Various industries elaborated upon the system until
    the first general standard was published in 1975. The electronic data
    interchange (EDI) standard is unambiguous, independent of any particular
    machine, and flexible enough to handle most simple electronic transactions. In
    addition to standard forms for business-to-business transactions, e-commerce
    encompasses much wider activity - for example, the deployment of secure private
    networks (intranets) for sharing information within a company, as well as
    selective extensions of a company's intranet to collaborating business networks
    (extranets). A new form of cooperation known as a virtual company, actually a
    network of firms, each performing some of the processes needed to manufacture a
    product or deliver a service, has flourished"

    Looks at a piece of legislation being debated right now that is intended to address piracy.

    "The bill would give the government legal tools to blacklist a "rogue" website from the Internet's Domain Name System, ban credit card companies from processing US payments to the site, and forbid US-based online ad networks from working with the site. It even directs the government to keep a list of suspect sites, even though no evidence has been presented against them in court."

P2P lawyers score a victory; mass subpoenas can proceed - 0 views

  •  
    One way that some have tried to deal with piracy is by suing large groups of people that are sharing a file, rather than sue individual people. The problem is that there is a debate on whether it is alright to clump these people into a single case. This article shows that some attorneys have ruled that you may not lump multiple file sharers into a single case, while others have ruled this practice to be fine.
