Founder and CEO of VigLink, Oliver Roup is rallying up the troops to hit Sacramento in hopes of convincing California Governor Jerry Brown to kill the Internet tax bill that passed in the Senate and House this month. The bill would be a direct hit to the livelihood of affiliate marketers if approved.
Roup has danced around this type of bill once before. When a comparable bill passed in Illinios, Roup moved his office to Indiana. He now plans to take his Google Venture-based company to Nevada if the bill passes in California.
The Performance Marketing Association predicts the bill will hurt 25,000 companies if passed.
