My question involves business law in the state of: CA / NV
California has a law going into effect on July 1, 2012 which "prohibit a product from being sold in the state if it is the result of force feeding a bird for the purpose of enlarging the bird’s liver beyond normal size." This law in effect outlaws the production and sale of Foie Gras in the State of California.
My question is: I plan to open an internet store in the state of Nevada with headquarters, inventory and all other business activities strictly inside the state of NV. Would the act of shipping Foie Gras across the border to CA constitute a 'sale' in CA and therefore violate the statue as written or does the 'sale' take place in NV. The language of the statue prohibits the "product from being sold", is the location of delivery relevant to the 'sale'?
I understand the rules regarding sales tax and for that purpose realize that the sale is in NV and free of CA tax, I am strictly interested in the ability/likelihood for the State of California to take action against my company under the new law.
Thank you in advance,
