Welcome to the World Online Gambling Law Report.
Our legal journal has been providing essential analysis and commentary on the legal and regulatory issues affecting the online gambling sector since 2002.
The June edition of the journal is online now - have a look at what's inside via the left-hand column.
Perhaps the biggest story of this month's edition is the news that the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association (the GBGA) has sent letters, as required by Pre-Action Protocol, to the UK government and UK Gambling Commission, essentially the formal beginning of a potential judicial review of the UK's new gambling regime. An equally controversial topic is tackled in our news story on how 'illegal sports betting' is defined in the European Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, which Malta is seeking to amend.
Elsewhere, we have features this month on the potential Wire Act 'fix' in the US, analysis of how forthcoming EU VAT changes could affect remote gambling businesses, and a report on recent research into social gaming.
