Today on CLBR: Infamies Past and Present from Pearl Harbor to Harrisburg

Today’s CLBR features Rebecca Madigan from the Performance Marketing Ass’n to discuss Pennsylvania’s adoption of the Amazon tax retroactively via a Press Release.  See Pennsylvania Enacts Amazon Tax Via Press  Release from Cyber Report.  If Pennsylvania had the authority all along,

  • why did it not act, for example, when from 1992 to 2009 approximately $212 trillion in e-commerce sales were made from the state (based on pro-rata per capita share of national e-commerce sales); or
  • why did it attempt to enact its own Amazon law?

Also covered are Facebook’s problems with Effin, Ireland; Righthaven’s new benefactor and remembering Pearl Harbor.

PS Happy Birthday to Larry Bird!
