Extraterritorial internet gambling: legal challenges and policy options
by Edward A. Morse
International Journal of Intercultural Information Management (IJIIM), Vol. 1, No. 1, 2007

Abstract: Casino gambling in the USA is highly regulated. Internet gambling operations circumvent domestic regulatory systems designed to accomplish various policy goals, including protecting minors, enforcing tax laws and preventing money laundering. The absence of international cooperation and legal options for restricting access to internet gambling appear limited to targeting domestic aspects of the internet business model, including advertising and financial services. However, financial intermediaries provide a constantly moving target for regulators. Willingness to pursue more invasive policy options may depend on what social science research reveals about the social harms of internet gambling, as well as security threats from unregulated cash flows.
