Why not? Let's say a person running a website and making money from google adsense, it is illegal?

Yeah, I am also curious on this one. How about trading? Buying something for cheap and reselling at a higher price? For eg. You buy a car for 20k and sell it for 40k and keep doing that again and again. I guess there is a very fine line between personal buy and sell and then doing it as a business.

The way I understand it is, a business--online or off--must be registered in the country where it conducts its thing, hence the 'need for legality.'

Running ads on something like a blog or resource website, however, is muddled. Although, most taxation laws require you to state other sources of income when you file your ITR.
