European Commission Slams U.S. Gambling Law

The European Commission issued a report last month stating that the current law in the U.S. surrounding online gambling is both not legally justified and discriminatory against foreign operators.

The report was instigated after a Trade Regulation Barrier complaint was filed by the Remote Gambling Association on the grounds that the current treatment of foreign internet gambling operators by the U.S. constituted a barrier to market access for European operators.

Jeffrey Sandman, a spokesman for the Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative said of the ECís findings that ďThe European Commissionís report provides yet another reason why the Obama Administration and Congress should support pending legislation to regulate internet gambling, which would resolve the trade agreement violation and better protect consumers.Ē
