That is not always the case. Cheers!
A German internet service provider (ISP) does not have to block its customers from accessing foreign betting websites even if they are considered illegal in the country, according to reports. The Administrative Court of Düsseldorf ruled that Deutsche Telekom did not have to block access to the sites, according to a translation …
from this is that it would render the recent court order to block newzbin etc null as it is an EU E-Commerce Directive.
"The Directive says that service providers are generally not responsible for the activity of customers and that member states must not put service providers under any obligation to police illegal activity on their services."
Where is (sports*) betting permitted then? Obviously here in the UK there are numerous Corals etc on every high st, low street, and occasionally in the grounds of a pub, but is it normally restricted? I know that it's tightly regulated in the U.S. but I put that down to puritanical routes.
I know that a lot of poker websites are based in the Carribean, but I presumed they were based there for tax advantages. Is betting generally more frowned upon in the wider world?
* I put sports btting in parentheses because sometimes they are treated differently.
I am getting between 20 and 50 spams per day from internet gambling sites and it is a real Royal / Royale SP Club Casino Gaming Club Pain (ya'll have a few keywords to filer on now).
In a perfect world we'd be able to use anti-spam laws to take 'em down,. no further legislation necessary
