Ebay regulation craziness

I just read this article Ohio Wants eBayers to Pay $50k Bond on Slashdot. Crux of the article is that the state of Ohio in the US wants to charge eBay sellers a $200 license fee PLUS put up a $50k bond. When asked who this would apply to Senate Sen. Larry Mumper had this to say, “It certainly will not apply to the casual seller on eBay, but might apply to anyone who sells a lot”. If that isn’t one of the most vague comments I’ve ever heard, I don’t know what is.
