With markets like Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom applying serious restrictions on gambling advertising or, in some cases, a full prohibition in an attempt to expand consumer protections and promote responsible gambling, many industry insiders are questioning whether similar restrictions might be on the horizon for U.S. gaming markets. This speculation, of course, raises immediate questions about whether such efforts would run into first amendment challenges including legal battles from offshore gaming sites who promote their products in areas where their offerings are currently illegal. Featuring a diverse range of legal and regulatory experts, this session will explore these issues and more.
