Online Gaming: The New U.S. Landscape
Thursday, March 1 2012 11:00 am – 12:00 pm, U.S. ET
At the end of 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a clarifying opinion on its interpretation of the Wire Act of 1961, essentially saying the Act prohibits only online sports betting while allowing for the online sale of lottery tickets. The decision seemingly clears a major federal hurdle for states looking to legalize online gambling within their borders, and active discussions about legislation are taking place across the country. For all its clarifications, however, the DOJ opinion raises more questions than answers. And the call for federal legislation has strengthened as the prospect for a patchwork quilt of regulations looms. During this session, experts will explore the fallout of the DOJ decision and what it means for the future of online gambling in the U.S. You'll get up to speed on the legislative proposals being discussed at the state and federal levels and learn why strengthening law enforcement and providing effective consumer protections are more vital than ever.
