If you live in Philadelphia and if you write a blog, the city says you need to obtain a $300 business license plus pay taxes on any profits made. The taxes seem reasonable but a $300 business license?!?
All this is in spite of the fact that most blogs make less than $50 a year, there is no outward sign of a business at the blogger's residence, there is no increased traffic to and from the blogger's place of "business" and there is no other impact to the city.
A license? For what?
