November's issue of the World Online Gambling Law Report
Daily fantasy sports - and the question of their overlap with gambling - continue to be a major issue this month. In New York state, the Attorney General has put a halt to DFS businesses with cease and desist letters to the major operators in this area, as we report in our lead news commentary story. Meanwhile, following a filing of a class action in the US by the NFL player Pierre Garcon relating to the use, among other things, of player images in DFS contests, Albert Agustinoy and Jorge Monclus of Cuatrecasas, Goncalves Pereira analyse the lawsuit and how similar actions might be handled in European courts if DFS gains momentum there.
Our feature articles this month also include a piece by David Clifton of Clifton Davies Consultancy Ltd, who discusses the GB Gambling Commission's recently begun review of P2P online poker, with the Commission seeking the opinion of licence holders about collusion and cheating.
Diane Mullenex and Annabelle Richard of Pinsent Masons meanwhile review how the EU data protection landscape is shifting, with the incoming General Data Protection Regulation and the decision by the CJEU in the Schrems case both set to make a substantial impact; Diane and Annabelle explain how all this affects online gambling operators.
