Act online gambling in the United States explained.
In recent months there has been much hype about the new law was passed, and many rumors about what works and what does not.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that the new law makes online gambling more illegal than it was before.
It’s all in the name.
“Illegal gambling Internet Enforcement Act.” The actual name of the law is rather cryptic, “and the port security responsibility for any act of 2006.”
The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement section starts on page 213 itself (the action itself can be found on the conference website)
As the name suggests, its main objective is to enforce gambling laws existing Internet.
The creators of the law, (Congress), a criminal offense for financial institutions to make money from websites that are against the laws of the United States (online game).
The law applies only to the funding mechanism for Internet gambling everything is already illegal. Let me clarify this last point, any action to enforce existing laws only said that financial institutions that are responsible if they handle money for a website that violated U.S. law in the first place.
So what is the definition of Internet gambling illegal?
§ 5362 (6) defines unlawful Internet Gambling is meant delivering or receiving a bet “is where the bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable law or the state.” If it were not illegal before, it is not.
The main problem is that Internet gambling is illegal (to varying degrees) in 11 states, so that now the banks have to ensure that sites are free to have accepted illegal money.
Paris, the sport became illegal in 1961, introduced by the Law of wire, but gambling on the Internet, it is not.
Where in the world.
Another drawback of the law in the jurisdiction, Congress has no power to make rules for a company that lives abroad.
Is not that the United States have the power to subpoena order an offshore company to spin the records. So, how can you tell where the money comes from?
And most importantly, how can financial institutions do not know if the money comes from illegal activities, (United States), or not.
This last point explains the hysteria of some financial institutions, they assume that if he did not say where the money comes (for various reasons), if he could be charged with a crime at a later date.
