Amazon Associates Program Terminated in California Immediately

Joel Falconer at The Next Web:

Amazon informed Californian users of the Amazon Associates program earlier today that they’d no longer be permitting Californians to participate by the end of September if the online retailer sales tax bill was made law. The governor today passed the bill, and Amazon says it has been forced to move the deadline up.

They aren’t wasting any time. As of today, June 29, 2011, Amazon says, Associates contracts with Californian residents are terminated.

Amazon did the same thing in Arkansas, Connecticut, and Illinois. Update: Colorado too.
