Submission + - SPAM: Are MMOs subject to US state use taxes?

Lord of Hyphens writes: "I was talking with a friend about the use taxes many states have, and the question came up if online games that charged a subscription fee were subject to a use tax, as the fees represent a service that could be shown to be consumed in the taxing state. Sales taxes could also apply (servers located in a given state == business presence). Could these games be taxed under the existing laws, and why haven't our lawmakers decided to help themselves to this revenue stream?"
