States starting to tax the cloud

Just when we though we had enough controversy in the Cloud, we get taxation.

Yup.  Legislators across the US are gaining up in the Internet (The Cloud) in what looks to become an incessent, difficult struggle to translate a 19th Century "Bricks and Mortar" mentality to 21st century digital communications.  And it will be ugly before it gets better.

I feel sorry for the big guys like Amazon who sell "stuff".  The rest of the monitization and commercial equation will be more difficult to track.

And what to do about all that off-shore activity.  I know, an INTERNATIONAL INTERNET TAX.
