Online Gambling Made Illegal in Norway
By Staff
Scandinavian country Norway is following in the footsteps of the United States by introducing her own version of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act which has caused worldwide controversy since its inception in the USA.

As is the case in the US, outcry has come from every direction regarding implementation of the program. Bankers call the law unworkable and a competitive disadvantage, and civil libertarians are horrified.

Some are also concerned that this new law may violate some contracts and obligations that Norway has to the European Union. Already, the Remote Gaming Alliance has filed a complaint with the European Free Trade Association.

The Norwegian measure makes assisting online gambling sites, for instance by processing transactions, a violation of law. Only the state-owned gambling services, including the lottery, are legal.
