B. The following activities, among others, do not constitute
transacting business within the meaning of subsection A:

5. Selling through independent contractors;

6. Soliciting or obtaining orders, whether by mail or through
employees or agents or otherwise, if the orders require acceptance
outside this Commonwealth before they become contracts;

9. Owning, without more, real or personal property;

C. The list of activities in subsection B is not exhaustive.

So, yeah. There are scenarios in which registration is required and
there are scenarios in which it's not. Look at the sentences above.
That's a challenge for a judge to make an assessment, let alone ARIN.
