I went to sign up as an amazon affiliate and found out that Rhode Island, Colorado, and North Carolina are not allowed to participate in the program because of tax issues with amazon. More details here: http://bit.ly/9ZV4eq I've come up with two ideas for workarounds: 1) Use your name, but an address of a friend in another state. You'd probably have to create a new account with amazon, but I don't see how they'd be able to link the two, since people often share the same names. 2) Use a person in another state (that isn't using the program) and pay them a cut of the profit. I'd personally prefer option one, but I want to make sure I'm not overlooking any obvious issues. Thoughts?
