I understand a merchant's motivation in dropping commissions to 0%; since they're probably closing their program they don't really care if they piss off their affiliates or not. I get it, they're scum.
But what about the networks? Why would they let a merchant screw them and THEIR affiliates? Actually I don't recall this happening with any network other than SaS. Do other networks have some mechanism in place that prevents merchants from zeroing out their commission structure?

In my experience you have to honor the pixel and the cookie through the duration of the contract. SAS has a 30 day policy but if the merchant has a 90 day cookie then sale should be tracked through the 90 days. Most networks have a 7 day notice some a 30 day notice. Rematt is right that a 0% commission screws the network too.

The following was their announcement - I'll be closing the program today as accepting traffic and not paying commission is obviously unacceptable.
Hello Affiliate friends!
Hopefully you've been keeping up with the changes in our program and have taken the time to check out our new affiliate page.
In order to insure a smooth transition to our new program and prepare for our very busy Fall and Holiday seasons, we'll be winding down our program on Share A Sale by the end of August 2011.
On July 30th, our default commission rate on Share A Sale will change to 5%. On August 31st, the Share A Sale pixel will be removed from our site.
Please work with Julie Stepkowski, our Program Manager to transition to the new program. You can contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
