France Online Casino Law to Change
By staff
The European Commission has instructed the French Government to modify its draft law on online gambling to allow foreign gambling companies to operate in France or face legal action.

“Last week, we sent a detailed opinion to France concerning the draft law, which is aimed at prohibiting foreign operators from coming to sell their services on the French market,” said Ton Van Lierop, Spokesman for the European Union.

The Commission said that the French draft law violates article 49 of the European Union treaty concerning the free provision of services. Van Lierop said that the French have until August 24 to change their draft law or face the possibility of being taken to court.
