Media Watchdog Comes Out Against UIGEA
Since it has passed, more than 6 months ago, the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act has managed to anger many at the online casino industry, but it seems as not only there. Congressman Barney Frank, for example, recently called it the “stupidest law passed by Congress” and there’s no doubt that he’s not the only one thinking that way. If that’s not enough, MediaChannel.org, an influential media watchdog has joined the critics this week, condemning the UIGEA as a bad law. This organization, which was founded in New York in the year 2000, deals with the political, cultural and social impacts of the media. In addition, thanks to its activity it is regarded by many as the first media and democracy “supersite”.
During a recent article about the “best and worst laws”, the site turned the spotlight on the banning of online gambling financial transactions, naming it as one of the worst existing laws. “This law is a flagship example of how special interest lobbying combined with legislative mumbling can produce an unreadable mess” it said in the article, and any online casino gambler would certainly agree with that right away.
According to MediaChannel, the main problems with this controversial law are that it was written in an unintelligible language and that it is pockmarked with special interest exceptions. In addition, the site claims that the Congress didn’t make clear what constitutes illegal online gambling, yet third party were required to block financial transaction to and from online casino sites. From now on we can only hope that someone at the Congress will wake up and understand the terrible mistake that they made by passing this anti-online casino law.
