U.S. Has Until April to Fix Gambling Ban

IN BRIEF / GAMING

August 20, 2005|From Bloomberg News

A World Trade Organization arbitrator gave the United States until April 3 to end discrimination against foreign online betting companies after a complaint by the Caribbean island of Antigua.

WTO judges ruled April 7 that a U.S. ban, in the interests of "public morals," can stand only as long as the prohibitions don't discriminate against foreign companies. The U.S. has said it can comply with WTO rules by clarifying its restrictions, without opening itself to foreign Internet gambling.
