Posted by tipp24blog - 30.06.2009
Das englische Marktforschungs-Unternehmen Gambling Compliance Limited beschäftigt sich in seinem neuen Bericht mit der EU-weiten Glücksspiel-Regulierung. Begleitend führt Gambling Compliance dazu aus:
Financial transaction (FT) and ISP blocking restrictions are gathering momentum. Since the introduction of payment blocking regulations in the United States in 2006, seven EU member states have introduced mechanisms for blocking online gambling, and a further eight jurisdictions are presently considering blocking measures as part of broader reform debates.
Im Executive Summary weist Gambling Compliance unter anderem auf folgendes hin:
Transactions and ISP-blocking plans are the next frontier for policy enforcement.
Blocking measures already under consideration across Europe include:
✦ ISP Blocking. Pioneered in Italy, this is where a state-sanctioned blacklist is passed to internet service providers (ISPs) requiring them to identify and block illegal online gambling websites from users. Germany, Estonia, Sweden and Hungary have all either already acted to introduce a similar system, or are currently considering it as part of a wider reform of online gambling laws.
✦ Financial Transactions Blocking. Online gambling payments blocking was brought to the world’s attention with the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) introduced in the USA in 2006. A number of EU member states including Norway, the Netherlands, Austria, Estonia, Germany and Spain are considering UIGEA-type legislation. While the US law aimed to complement a blanket prohibition, many European jurisdictions may use the measure to complement local licensing regimes.
