WTO Ruling Supports Internet Regulatory Arbitrage

Something I want to read when I get home—the decision by the WTO described (rather summarily) in Las Vegas panics as WTO rules offshore gambling legal. The US is currently engaged in a host of practices, particularly leaning on credit card companies, to block access to off-shore Internet gambling from the US.

The internet gambling issue is a very interesting test of the ability of a government to prevent residents from engaging in regulatory arbitrage.

And it looks like those efforts just took one on the chin.
