    I understand what you're saying and I agree to an extent. I believe each state has the right to decide whether each students education meets their standards. That's in theirr best interest of the residents of that particular state. But I DON'T believe each state has the right to state approve an out of state program. Regarding the taxes issue I also think differently on because if you bought something from Texas then you should be paying their state taxes not the state that you live in. The item came from a store in Texas, not a store in Nevada. This makes no sense, it's like saying I'm visiting New Hampshire and I buy a dress there and the store wants to charge me CA taxes. It makes no sense. Again, with the case of online schools each state has a right to evaluate a graduates nursing education to make sure it meets their standards. But that state doesn't have a right to approve an out of state online school.

    But it's the nature of the internet that makes all of this so confusing and interesting. If you're in New Hampshire and buy a dress while you're there, obviously the store is in New Hampshire, you're in New Hampshire, you're making that purchase in New Hampshire and you pay New Hampshire sales tax on it. But, if you're at home in Oklahoma and you make an online purchase from a business that's based in New Hampshire, is that purchase taking place in New Hampshire or Oklahoma?? You're certainly not in New Hampshire, you're in Oklahoma ... If someone is taking online courses on their computer at home in Oklahoma from a business that is based in New Hampshire, the actual education is physically taking place in Oklahoma, where the student is physically located. The individual's computer in Oklahoma is, basically, essentially, a "branch office" of the school, and it is located in Oklahoma. To me, it seems reasonable that the state of Oklahoma, therefore, has a right to insist that the school meet the same standards it requires other schools operating within the state to meet.

    This is why internet law is such an interesting legal specialty -- because all of this kind of stuff is still getting sorted out ...

    Ahhhhh perfect example. Oh I took a guess as I didn't know. I heard something about people from neighboring states going into Vermont or NH Wal-mart so they didn't have to pay state taxes.
