Selling on eBay in North Dakota? You May Need a License

North Dakota (population 642,200) is contemplating whether to require an auctioneer's license before they can legally sell items for others on eBay (and presumably, other auction sites).  An auctioneer's license costs $35, with added requirements that include obtaining a $5,000 surety bond and training at one of eight approved auction schools.

California, Florida, Maine, Missouri, and Texas are considering similar rules, while Tennessee already has something like this in place.

More information is available from this AP story at the CNN website.
