UIGEA Regulations Issued: Still Vague and Problematic

Nov. 12, 2008 - The US Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve System today released the final regulations for the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA). Volumes of testimony about the law's vagueness and practical unworkability from both within and without the administration, most notably from the US banking sector, upon which the burden for enforcing UIGEA will fall, appears not have swayed regulators, as the published regulations differed little from the draft version that had been the subject of debate for more than a year.

Poker has fallen on hard times and it has little to do with the shattered economy.
