Ohio eBay Sellers To Be Licensed[1]

Here's something that's sure to send the stock price of eBay down:
Besides costing $200 and posting a $50,000 bond, the license requires a one-year apprenticeship to a licensed auctioneer, acting as a bid-caller in 12 auctions, attending an approved auction school, passing a written and oral exam. Failure to get a license could result in the seller being fined up to $1,000 and jailed for a maximum of 90 days.
Oooh boy, sign me up.
