    Affiliates who were terminated by the affiliate programs above could register on Ebay's affiliate network (EPN).

    Seems like Amazon own quite a bit of companies, some that have affiliate programs and some that don't.

    Did all of these subcompanies also terminate affiliates?

    I started this discussion thread to create a list of companies which have actually terminated (or announced termination, with a specific end date) of their existing performance-based advertising ("affiliate programs").

    I'm very uncomfortable with naming companies which someone thinks are "likely to" or "might" terminate Illinois affiliates, based only on "intelligent speculation."

    For at least two of the programs listed as "ended," I'm unable to find any supporting evidence (such as a copy of a termination email, a blog post, or a news article). For several others, I'm aware of specific reasons why they're unlikely to end their affiliate programs.

    It makes no sense at all to name companies (like IMDB) who sell no products and who never had an affiliate program.

    I'm even more uncomfortable with the idea of posting "suggestions" of alternate advertisers.

    I'm with you on this. Let's keep the list to actual terminations.
