European privacy restrictions pose threat to U.S.-based marketers
The EU directive on data protection poses serious and far-reaching implications for US-based direct marketers. The policy could prohibit a direct marketer from collecting, buying or selling a consumer's personally identifying information unless the consumer explicitly consents to the use of that information. The directive could also prevent multinational corporations from transferring internal data between the US and Europe. The US government and the industry are taking the necessary steps to deal with the problem.

Quill Corporation v. North Dakota: an answer to the taxing problem surrounding mail-order sales
The US Supreme Court reconfirmed National Bellas Hess v Department of Revenue's ruling in Quill Corp v North Dakota, maintaining that the commerce clause and physical presence requirements prevented states from taxing mail-order businesses. However, in the Quill ruling, the Supreme Court gave Congress the previously barred ability to legislate on the issue. Therefore, it is up to Congress to legislate a true standard for the application of state taxes to out-of-state, mail-order businesses.
