Interesting story on Business Insider: How eBay Worked With The FBI To Put Its Top Affiliate Marketers In Prison
A couple random things in the article, though:
"...and speak the arcana of affiliate marketing..." So cloak and dagger... and ridiculous. "The problem with affiliate marketing is that there isn't much money in it." No, affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick scheme. Some people make full-time livings with it, and most others use it to supplement their incomes. I am not sure how this would be labeled a "problem".
