Xerox terminates their affiliate program

My spin:Why? I don’t know but will find out hopefully soon…stay tuned.
Here’s an email I got today:

Dear Xerox eBusiness Partner:
Thank you for your participation in the Xerox eBusiness Partner Program. Please be advised the decision has been made to discontinue the program effective December 31, 2002.
We request that you remove all banners, links, logos and representations of Xerox products or services that you may currently have on your site. The last voucher run will occur on January 1, 2003, and you will receive your checks for December performance, in mid January, if you have earned commissions over the $25 threshold.
Thank you in advance for you attention to this matter and, again, for your participation in the program. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us by responding to this email.
