The death and rebirth of Amazon Associates in Illinois.
We discuss our experiences with the Amazon Associates affiliate marketing program as residents of Illinois. Back in 2010, Illinois lawmakers decided that they wanted a piece of the affiliate pie, but all they ended up doing was to destroy almost every business in our area supported by the program. Companies like Fatwallet moved to Wisconsin to save their business. Two years later the Illinois supreme court removed the related laws, which allowed websites that offer similar programs to begin offering it again. Scott recently re-signed up to be an affiliate, which has started well.
