US Punished by WTO in UIGEA case

On December 26, 2007, in General, by Neil Stevens

When the Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, making it much harder for US poker players and gamblers to deposit money into online cardrooms and casinos abroad, Antigua complained to the WTO. Antigua won, too.

Well, the WTO has now penalized the US and rewarded Antigua by ruling that Antigua may disregard US copyrights to the tune of $21 million annually. I imagine some online services based in Antigua are coming with cheap downloads of US movies, music, and television.
