New US Gambling Law

New US Gambling Law – In late September 2006 the US Senate introduced the “Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act 2006”. It was not so much introduced as pushed through against the back of the “Safe Port Act”, in which some commentators have taken over the exception. This has created confusion and (some might say) hysteria among players, web owners and online gambling affiliates. But what exactly does the new law mean? This article looks at the facts behind this new law.

The first clue is in the words DominoQQ Alternative Link itself; it is law enforcement. In other words it enforces the law in the past and the existing one where the legality of the game has been set as a precedent case, and also the legality and illegality of the various game styles that already exist. result togel hari ini

I can do far worse than directly quoting the words of wisdom from Cardplayers legal counsel. He wrote that the new bill

“Attempts to make it more difficult to make money online by banning US financial institutions from funding a style of online gambling that was originally made by law illegal. The new bill doesn’t make online gaming illegal where it wasn’t originally illegal. The bill only talks about the mechanism that funds online accounts. ”

In other words, the Act seeks to restrict Internet gambling sites by starving them, by ordering banks not to allow players to use their credit cards to play on those sites. bandar togel online

There is nothing about the activity itself that is illegal (where it wasn’t originally). And clearly, unless the gambling sites in question are located overseas, then by definition they are not subject to US law. So the only way to acquire these offshore sites is through banks and credit card companies.

The article I cited went on to cite the importance of the Wire Act of 1961, which was interpreted to have made sports betting illegal, but not a game like poker, arguing that the law had never been enforced with respect to poker in the ten years that internet gambling had existed. In contrast, the 33 cases brought under the Wire Act were pursued by “dead gamblers” who had no desire to repay their gambling debts. The judge on occasion, Stanwood R. Duvall Jr., dismissed all 33 lawsuits, thus ensuring that online poker was not within the reach of the Wire Act prohibition. live draw hk
